“We are truly better together.”
This sentiment has never been truer as The Mustard Seed, and the rest of the world, have been navigating life during a pandemic. As the everyday has looked so different for everyone over the past two years the world has realized that the only way to move forward, is together.
Good Samaritan Society CEO, Dr. Katherine Chubbs, shares this belief and is excited for the opportunity to partner with The Mustard Seed in the Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) fundraiser happening February 26th.
“Partnering with like-minded organizations who share our values and mission furthers the others-centered culture we are growing,” says Katherine.
CNOY is a fundraising walk that supports local charity partners who provide essential care services for people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Katherine says that their organization will have two teams participating, one team in Edmonton walking to support The Mustard Seed and another walking in Lethbridge in support of Streets Alive. Taking part in fundraisers like this and collaborating with The Mustard Seed is a top priority for Katherine, not only for the organization but in her personal life too.
“I have always looked for ways to give back to the communities that I have lived and served in throughout my life and career,” says Katherine.
“This is integral to who I am and the values I live by. As a leader, I want to set the tone for services to those in need and see our Good Samaritan organization become known for its mission-driven culture.”
