The Vulnerable in Society
Greg has a seven-year old daughter (Maisy) who has global developmental issues. One might think that his motivation in helping organizations that involve those with physical and intellectual disabilities stems from this. The fact is that Greg has been involved for many years with organizations that focus on these issues dating back before Maisy was born. He spent 8 years as the Treasurer for the Community Residential Living Board (CRLB) and has been a longtime supporter of Special Olympics. He is also a major contributor to the New Brunswick Association of Community Living (NBACL).
Greg is a Certified Professional Consultant on Aging (CPCA) and has worked with a lot of seniors. His efforts include the considerable volunteer work he did at Riverside Court and donations he has made to the Carleton Manor.
An essential part of giving back to the community for Greg is to help and protect the most vulnerable in society. The intentions and sentiment on this are best summed up by a few famous quotes:
"Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life - a kind of destiny." - Princess Diana
"The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members." - Mahatma Gandhi
