VIDEO: A big surprise for a special local mom

A much-deserved Mother's Day Random Act of Kindness surprise for a giving local mother

Teresa is a dedicated volunteer, a loving mother, and a positive community member who is continuously giving back.

After years of battling eye sight loss, and a number of other health issues, Teresa remained committed to doing something for others. After being forced to leave work because of her health struggles, she decided she needed to give back to the community. 

She began running the Daily Grind Coffee Shop and Cuppa Cabana at the Group Health Centre, where she works on a volunteer basis. She created a warm community at the shops, with great conversation and a delicious cup of coffee.

Despite her own health issues, Teresa still gets up every morning at 6am and opens her shops. It's what makes her--and the staff and patients at Group Health Centre--smile every day.

Watch as we surprise Teresa with a much-deserved random act of kindness.

A special thank you to our generous sponsors who make this program possible. Today's Random Act of Kindness sponsor is Community First Credit Union, who purchased all of the gifts for Teresa's surprise.
