One Crucial Ingredient

For Donna, retirement means being active within her community and sharing the joy of volunteering.

Donna recently retired after a career in banking. “I said to myself, I’m retired, I’m healthy, and I’m not going to sit around when there are people out there I can help.”

Donna has been volunteering delivering meals in the Rockingham area. “Halifax Meals on Wheels is perfect for me. It takes away stress and brings joy. It also gets me out into the community, and I’m introverted so it gets me out of my shell.”

Donna’s favourite experience so far was delivering on Christmas Day and adding a few special treats of her own, “I baked shortbreads…with Splenda,” she smiles.
