This week for our COMMUNITY IMPACT, we hear from one of our volunteers and how WorldServe gave her the skills to go out into the workforce here in Calgary. Here is Sushma’s story:“I am originally from Bengaluru, India, but have been living in Calgary for the past 10 months. The hardest thing about moving to Calgary was acclimatizing to the weather fluctuations!”
I think we can all agree that Calgary weather takes a toll on everyone but it’s hardest for newcomers. Sushma started volunteering with WorldServe 3 months ago.
“I had been a faithful customer at WorldServe Thrift store and during one of my regular visits to the store, I heard about the volunteer opportunity.”
When Sushma first joined us, she was shy and wanted to start volunteering in intake, the donation section of the store. Since her first day she began learning many new skills. She quickly gained her confidence and became a friendly face to the customers and fellow volunteers.
“The best thing that happened to me from volunteering at WorldServe Thrift store, was that I made a lot of friends! As well, interacting with the customers increased my self-confidence. During my time volunteering, I improved my communication skills and was also able to learn more about Canadian currency and culture.”
Now with her confidence and English skills she is now leaving WorldServe to begin taking more classes in computer coding where she will continue to enhance her skills to land that perfect job! We will miss Sushma’s warm smile and presence at our store, but know that her skills learned will take her very far here in Calgary!
“I want others to also experience the good feelings, and great times that I had at WorldServe Thrift Store.”
If you’re interested in learning more about becoming a volunteer at our store or know someone who is, please stop in or give us a call to learn more!

At WorldServe we don’t turn away—we pray—and try to offer help. It has been difficult at times seeing and working with people that come into our store so desperate that they believe stealing is the only way. Honestly, it’s hard to understand and think that people would steal from a charity that is trying to help the most vulnerable, but it’s a reality that we see all too often. We thought about how WorldServe could still help these people but not draw attention to the desperation they were facing in the middle of our store. How could we be respectful and turn the other cheek—but never a blind eye?
This initiative has now been created and we have a section in the entrance of our donation area where people don’t need to steal but can instead take what they need. We keep it stocked with the essentials—sleeping bags, footwear, coats, underwear, pants, shirts, socks, toiletries, and yes even food. Some days no one comes, and we are really glad, other days we run out of items, but we are still glad. Glad because that meant we were able to help them, glad they could find the courage to ask instead of steal, and glad that we could pray for them. When someone comes to the back, we get their name and they can take what they need— including a bible. Some faces are new and very thankful. Some faces we see from time to time.  Some have shared their pain. Some might look so much better than the last time we’ve seen them. Some might have fallen again. But no matter what, we end the conversation with this reminder “God has a plan for you my friend, He is strength and He is hope.”
Here is the list of names for the last month that our store has had an opportunity to help and pray for:  Jason, Justin, Sarah, Dave, Daniel, Bill, Alisha, Susan, Casey, Evan, Tammy, Brendan, Pam, Don, Derrick, Bryce, Deano, Curtis, Cody, John, Ryan.
We invite you all to pray for every single one of them. Help us help them realize that they are not alone and remind them we always have our door open.
It’s because of our amazing donors that we are able to help ALL of those in need. Thank YOU for your continued donations and support.
Community impact—As a non-profit organization we rely on the support of the community to be able to do what we do. It is because of the support of our WorldServe community—donors, customers, volunteers, and staff, that we are able to help the greater Calgary community.
Starting today we are going to be doing weekly features of the community impact WorldServe has the privilege of helping with and witnessing, sharing stories to inspire the rest of us to get out and impact the community.
Stay tuned to our page for the first story of how our store is helping some people that come through our door in desperate need.

WorldServe Thrift partners with local organizations in each community to make a difference right here at home. We also make an impact globally by turning donated housewares into hope, revitalized furniture into food, pass-alongs into a helping hand.
