Love is a Verb: CHANGEmakers edition!

Get ready to be inspired! Meet the 519CommunityCollective

Created as a response to the Covid-19 Pandemic on March 30, 2020, Founder Julie Sawatzky started this grassroots mission to help others in a time of great need. Their mission is simple: be honest, be kind, show love and compassion, and do it all while being humble!

From its beginnings of Julie and her children distributing food to those on the street, to only 2 short two years later having 12 programs, 23 Little Free Pantries and outreach that provides food to over 300 people living on the streets of Waterloo Region each week.

Please have a listen to these amazing women and the work they are doing.

Meet Julie Sawatzky Founder Executive Director & Chief Operating Officer and Leah Goetz-Bryant Manager of Volunteer Resources.
