Compassionate Kenora’s storefront in the old Nibbler’s Nook location is getting a lot business. The storefront offers a safe place for meals and referrals to social supports in the area.
Ray Morgan talks about his experience volunteering at the centre, and why he chose to offer his time.
“Just love helping people. Love not seeing people suffering on the streets, getting a meal, getting some interaction where there wasn’t before. It really seems to be working in a positive way.”
“There’s a lot of traffic through here, but we have a lot of help with the volunteers and the people that are staffed here. It’s working out pretty good so far.”
Morgan says the centre sees between 60 to 80 people a day.
