The Secret Garden is passionate about supporting local communities. One organization we are proud to support is ONE TO ONE, a free children’s literacy program which helps students throughout the lower mainland improve their reading skills.
Each year The Secret Garden donates sweets, savouries and tea to support ONE TO ONE’s Volunteer Appreciation Tea at the Hycroft Manor. This month 380 volunteer tutors will be honoured for their dedication – many of them for 5, 10 and even 20 years of service!
ONE TO ONE sees volunteering as a way to prevent social isolation which is so common these days. Their program not only helps students thrive, but also bridges generational gaps and fosters community. Visit their website to learn more about becoming a volunteer tutor. They’re also hosting an annual Spelling Bee Fundraiser in May, and are accepting both corporate teams and individual participants!
