About The Blog

Your change can change lives!
A resource of fundraising and non-profit information
 I have been a volunteer for as long as I can remember and have one course left in a fundraising management certificate college program.  I am often asked about fundraising questions so I thought I could share what I have learned from my education as well as my own experience.
I will also share my community volunteer work as well as what is happening in different communities.
 About Darlene
“Darlene Morrison’s love for family and community is an inspiration and we are very lucky to have her in our community.  She is a very busy mother of four but you know what they say… If you want a job done fast, give it to a busy person”
Darlene volunteers as the Social Media Coordinator and Fundraising Coordinator for the Newmarket Food Pantry and is a Board of Director overseeing all fundraising activities and social media for the organization.  Darlene is involved in many community events and believe that if we work together, we can make a difference!

Darlene has been the Co-Organizer for the Clearmeadow Public School Winter Palooza for the past two years and has been on the school council for 10 years now in various positions, such as secretary, co-chair, volunteer coordinator, fundraising coordinator and general member.  Darlene loves to keep busy and engage with the community.

Darlene also coordinated and organized the “Great Canadian Food Fight” for the Newmarket Food Pantry in 2013 where the town of Newmarket went against other cities across Canada for the most amount of food collected in a 48 hour period.  In conjunction with Vince’s Market and the Newmarket Food Pantry and community members, over 15,000 LBS of food was raised for the Newmarket clients.

Darlene loves writing, media and working along with community members to make our world a better place.
