Honouring CRC’s longtime Volunteer Driver

VTLA-Chuck-1Chuck Grimbleby, CRC’s longtime volunteer driver, was one of 25 people from across Toronto recently honoured with a Volunteer Toronto Legacy Award.

On the evening of Monday, April 11th, Volunteer Toronto kicked off National Volunteer Week with their Legacy Award ceremony at City Hall. At the event, Chuck was honoured for the extraordinary service and dedication he brought to his role as CRC’s volunteer driver for 22 years. For over two decades, Chuck drove around collecting food, clothing and furniture donations, helping people move into new housing or rushing important documents and applications to City Hall.

VTLA-Chuck-2When assigned a driving task, all Chuck needed was an address and he would pull out his paper map and be ready to go. No job was too big or too small for Chuck. As a volunteer he demonstrated a level of dedication, support, and care for the Regent Park community that went above and beyond the call of duty.

And when he met people in need, he always referred them to CRC for a healthy meal, warm clothing, or housing help.
