This May, we would like to recognize Volunteer of the Month Sandra Mabel Velandia Lopez. A long-time volunteer who was one of the first to help us with our Virtual Volunteer Programing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since 2015 Sandra has been an outstanding volunteer, helping out at Immigrant Services Calgary in a variety of different roles.

We are pleased to congratulate Kavitha Kalyanam for being nominated as our Volunteer of the Month for April 2020! Starting as a volunteer in November of last year, Kavitha has been a huge help in a relatively short time. Volunteering primarily with the Children’s Program, she has contributed her time on a weekly basis to the Early Learning Across Cultures Project. The ELACP is a safe place for parents and children to make new friends, learn about other cultures, and share their experiences.
