Last week saw the dawning of a new era for the community of Burnaby and the lower mainland of British Columbia with the launching of Citizens Care Giving Circle Foundation.

At the launch over 80 people celebrated a new beginning. Burnaby-Edmonds MLA, Raj Chouhan presented President Paul Zen with a certificate of congratulations for this new non-profit organization. Also in attendance was Burnaby Councillor Paul McDonell, BCIT Instructor Mary Kay Thurston, and representatives from BFL Canada and Great People Personnel. East & West Alum Craft Ltd. was the major sponsor of the event along with Protech Chemicals and Alka Pool Construction Ltd. Students of Notre Dame Secondary High School volunteered their time.

Gina Lily and friends performed to an appreciative crowd.

Citizens Care Giving Circle is a place to partner people who wish to give back to the community with those individuals who are in need of support. Anyone can contribute and see the impact of their generosity, whether financially or with your time and skills to help someone in your community who needs a helping hand.

Maybe it is helping repair the front steps of a senior's home who no longer can take on the repairs financially or physically. Or maybe it's contributing to an inner city school that has children attending on an empty stomach - a challenging way to learn. Citizens Care Giving Circle hopes to address needs like this.

If you wish to find out more information, contribute or would like to recommend someone for assistance see their website at http://www.citizens-care.org.
