Neela Farid

Neela, a grade 11 student, arrived with her family in Canada three years ago and learned quickly the importance of having warm winter clothing for our Canadian winters. Her family was contacted by The Salvation Army’s Winter Clothing Program and received everything they needed from them. It has become Neela’s favourite charity and she has supported them since that first winter and will continue support the good work they accomplish in our communities. Neela also volunteers in her community through the Highland Stirling Community Group through their Great Games Escape Camp held during the March Break. She worked as a team leader and the Executive Director describes Neela as “a steady, calm, enthusiastic, respectful and respected leader.”
