Logo of Alberta Northern Lights recipient St. Paul and District Arts Foundation

Location: St. Paul, Alberta

It could be said that supporters of the St. Paul and District Arts Foundation have transformed volunteering into an art form.

Volunteers have collectively donated thousands of hours, calling upon their creativity to organize fundraisers despite the COVID pandemic. One such effort saw volunteers growing and donating plants to raise funds for youth programs in the community. The team of innovative volunteers also came together to run 2 virtual performances in the community, provide technical support to instructors offering programming virtually to youth in the community, and cleaning support spaces daily, ensuring continued access to the arts for St. Paul and area residents. And when not providing entertainment options for neighbours, the Foundation supported efforts to provide COVID screening.

Without the tireless dedication of each volunteer, the community of St. Paul would not have had the opportunity to experience and learn about the arts during a difficult year of isolation. For this and for their ongoing commitment to the cultural enrichment of the community, the St. Paul & District Arts Foundation is recipient of Northern Lights Volunteer Recognition.
