Harnoor Gill gives back to his community every time the opportunity presents itself; the Peace Welcome Club Book Drive is no exception. Set to be held on Friday, November 16 at the Gellert Community Centre (10241 Eighth Line) in Georgetown, Ontario from 5-6 p.m. , the drive aims to collect gently used books for First Nations children and teens living in Northern Ontario ‘to enhance their literary skills,’ according to the Peace Welcome Club’s Facebook page. Founded by Gill, the club encourages youth ages 4-18 to volunteer for their own communities as well as provide a place of common ground for youth who are new to Canada as well.
For Gill, the ability to help is not based on the individual’s age but on the willingness to help others and learn from them in the process.
