On Monday, January's Do Crew team kicked off the new year with a kitchen clean-up at the Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre.
The group of first-time Do Crew volunteers tackled everything from scrubbing cupboards and counters to cleaning out fridges and freezers.
They even moved the ovens, after cleaning inside them, to get to the walls and floors behind.
Three hours later, we all removed our dish gloves, emptied our buckets and mopped up the floor on our way out.
And just after that, a woman in chef's apron made her way into the kitchen and exhaled a sigh of relief.
Thanks to this month's Do Crew, the volunteers at Tyndale can focus on making meals and snacks for more than 100 kids every week day. And now they can do it in a freshly cleaned kitchen.
Thanks to Bradford, Evelyne, Marie and Marc for making it happen.
Another Do Crew event is just around the corner so stay tuned for details.
We are also reviewing applications for the month of March.
