4K Community Cup winner for February 2021
Bonnie Smith

 
Bonnie Smith has been making reassurance calls as a volunteer with 4Korners since 2017 but her history of volunteering dates back to when her now-adult children attended elementary school. Like so many of the volunteers I have the good fortune of meeting in my job, Bonnie believes the world would be a better place if more people volunteered. For Bonnie it comes naturally and is a quality she feels most volunteers possess; being a doer, and if that means stacking chairs you stack chairs, if it means folding tables you fold tables. You just do what needs to get done. As a member of her children’s PPO (Parent Participation Organization), Bonnie logged hundreds of volunteer hours and since “once a volunteer always a volunteer” this has continued well after her children left home.

Along with the reassurance calls for 4Korners, Bonnie has also helped run the Out to Lunch program with the United Church in Deux-Montagnes since 2012 and served up burgers and hot dogs Monday nights at the Heritage Social Club before COVID put all social gatherings on hold. (She can also mix a mean cocktail if you can tell her exactly what’s in it.) To hear her speak about these contributions leaves me with no doubt that she misses them as much as she is most certainly missed by the people whose orders she had ready before they opened their mouths. She tells me about the sound of a smiling face on the other end of the phone line and how the people she calls also want to know how she is doing. She may be the reassurance caller, but they are in a sense keeping an eye out for each other during a very weird time. She talks about how much she enjoys meeting people and the wonderful friends she has made through volunteering, many of whom she is still in touch with and are just as eager for things to return to normal.

When she is not volunteering her time, Bonnie works as a caregiver through the CISSS, helping out three seniors, two of whom reside at the Sélection Retraite seniors home in Deux-Montagnes. She sees firsthand the need for affordable housing for seniors and is extremely bothered when one of the ladies she assists is unable to afford a monthly Gazette subscription. Bonnie brings her the crossword from her own paper and often picks up her Saturday Gazette, a small gesture, but a perfect illustration of her ethos, doing what needs to be done.
