C.J. is often at the Asante Centre on Fridays volunteering in various roles. Her positive and cheerful nature, technical savvy, exceptional organization skills and her gentle caring nature with children make her an invaluable asset at the Centre.
Mary, a retired Special Education Assistant, graciously donates her time to the Asante Centre on a regular basis, helping with any number of projects we ask of her. The Centre is particularly grateful for her support with fundraising
efforts, organizing the Asante Centre Amazing Car Rally and Burger and Beverage, and the Neufeld Farms Holiday Treat Sale!
