Commemorating Canada's 150th Anniversary in Scarborough

Barbara Robbins

Throughout most of Barbara Robbins’ 40 years as a Scarborough resident, she has given her time and talents to helping young children in the Mornelle Court community. From teaching preschoolers how to read and enjoy books at the local Early Years Centre, to assisting kids at the East Scarborough Boys & Girls Club after-school program, to serving a healthy lunch to primary school students, this mother, grandmother, and former teaching assistant loves to see children thrive.

“I love working with kids because they are our future.”

These days this busy Celebrate Your Neighbour participant volunteers at the Mornelle Community Hub, a multi-use space provided by the City of Toronto to encourage regular exercise and nutritional – and culturally proud – meal preparation.
