The Kingston office of the Canadian Paraplegic Association held its annual volunteer appreciation dinner on December 14th. Peer Mentor Co-ordinator David Baldwin presented gifts to individuals who served as volunteers during 2010 including Andrea Andrecyk, Andy VanGrusven, Tamara VanGrusven, Nicole Cromwell, Joan Rose, John & Julia Stevenhaagen, Wendy Charboneau, Rex Donald and Wayne Westfall.
The Peer Mentor program, sponsored in Kingston by Bergeron Clifford, Personal Injury Lawyers, links individuals with spinal cord injury with volunteers who provide guidance, advice and support. Peer mentor volunteers share the knowledge and experience they’ve gained living with spinal cord injury in the community.
Anyone with questions regarding accessibility, social or recreational activities geared to individuals with spinal cord injury can contact the Kingston office of the Canadian Paraplegic Association at 613-547-1391.
