Youth volunteers at Tiny Home Takeout

Reading Time: < 1 minute

After a four-hour volunteer shift at Tiny Home Takeout, Dani Offak says she feels a sense of satisfaction.

“I feel good doing this when I help people. I feel proud of myself when I’m done volunteering.”

I will point out that Dani is 10-years-old — and has been volunteering at the Tiny Home for two years now.

It’s a family affair: joining her are her sister Andrea, 12, and their mother Nada Offak, Baden residents.

“The Tiny House volunteer experience has been amazing, especially being able to include my daughters,” says Nada who is special education liaison with the Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB).

“We went from being three of 30 volunteers to three of 150 active volunteers.”

Working out of the spacious commercial kitchen at St. Mary’s Church, the Tiny Home Takeout initiative — cooking and serving hot, nutritious and creative meals to unsheltered people — celebrated its second anniversary on January 26.
