To highlight the International Human Rights Day, members of the PSAC Greater Moncton Human Rights committee volunteered at the Karin Kitchen, an organization serving meals for people in need. They helped cutting veggies, serving people, cleaning the tables, washing the dishes. The committee also donated $200 to the Karing Kitchen to help them in their generosity. Thank you all for volunteering your help in the community is always appreciated.
At the last Greater Moncton Human Rights committee meeting, members had the pleasure to welcome representatives of the Moncton Cavalier Riding Club, who came to talk about the work their therapeutic riding club does for people with disabilities. This group receives some financial assistance from the United Way campaign therefore if your local would like to have someone come to make a presentation to better inform your members on their work, please do not hesitate to contact your PSAC regional representative, Monique Laplante from the Moncton PSAC regional office for more details.
