The Brantford and Brant communities have benefited immensely from opportunities Belonging Brant provides for participants to discover and build on their passions and strengths, says Amy Brandt, who is a supporter of the initiative.
“With the right supports, Belonging Brant has the potential to not only continue in its successful community-building projects, but also flourish,” she adds.
And Amy says she’s willing to do her part to make this happen.
Brantford citizens with a keen interest in photography are sharing their skills and talents with each other and across the community, thanks to their involvement with the Brantford/Brant County Photo Club.
And club member Adam Tipler is crediting the Belonging Brant initiative for making the project possible and for supporting the group by sharing the photo club’s work across social media platforms.
Kevin Noseworthy says his favourite aspect of the Belonging Brant initiative is seeing the support the project’s members provide people with to help them connect with others and form new friendships and partnerships aimed at building stronger communities.
Kevin, who works with Community Living Brant, one of the organizations involved with Belonging Brant, adds that the project is important because of the results it achieves.
Tina Barkhouse says being involved with the Random Acts of Kindness Group makes her feel more connected to the community by making others feel good through the friendly gestures she and other group members make.
And making others feel good makes her feel good, Tina adds.
