Air cadets are always volunteering to sell poppies leading up to Remembrance Day, often seen active in community parades, and stepping up for other efforts as needed.
Well the troops with the 746 Lightning Hawk squadron demonstrate their propensity for community leadership again during the holiday season.
Squadron members collected food and almost $300 in cash donations at their Christmas party that have been donated to Langley Sources Food Bank.
Likewise, the squadron decided to provide a family with a Christmas hamper this year, explained spokesperson Corrie Wong.
“The seniors took it upon themselves to collect food and gifts for a family of four and donations to enhance their holiday,” Wong explained.
“It is exciting to see the growth in leadership of these young adults. An amazing experience to witness their supportive and generous hearts for others in their community.”
