2014 Impact Awards ‑ Community Services

Posted by stephanie rogers on March 24, 2014 in News

Erin Lynch is the 2014 recipient of the Community Services Leadership Award.

The Community Service Leadership Award recognizes a student who has volunteered their time off campus, unselfishly giving of themselves through involvement within the community.

This year’s winner has dedicated countless hours saving animals, through her own non-profit rescue organization and through other non-profits around Nova Scotia. She takes rescued animals to the vet and spends both her own money and money she fundraises to help them recover and heal. She then rehabilitates them and finds them loving forever homes.

No matter how stressful her school life, home and work becomes, she always finds time and love for the animals she has rescued. She also volunteers at her daughter’s school, Dutch Settlement Elementary School, for the breakfast program, so that the children get a good and healthy start to the day.
