Cindy Fuchs is the vice president of Red Cross Saskatchewan. She says giving back helps communities thrive and grow.
“It’s really important to the Canadian Red Cross,” Fuchs said. “One of our principles is humanity. So we want to encourage people to remember that giving back to the community is the right thing to do.”
Paul and Carol Hill received the award for their extensive contributions to community and education initiatives. Carol Hill says receiving such recognition will hopefully inspire others to support community.
“We very involved, of course, in Mother Teresa School,” Hill said. “That is our day-by-day passion. You know, as Paul said tonight, this doesn’t belong to us. It belongs to the City of Regina. It belongs to the children.”
Paul and Carol established the One Life Makes a Difference charity, which they established to help underprivileged students achieve an education.
They founded the Mother Teresa Middle School, which supports youth in Grades 6, 7 and 8. It follows the students through high school and post-secondary school, right up to their first job
