The Volunteer of the Year Award is awarded to City of Summerside residents who have made outstanding contributions to life in the City through their extensive volunteer service. Please join Mayor Stewart and Summerside City Council in congratulating Sue Gallant on this award.

Mayor Stewart praised the selection of Sue Gallant as “a very worthy recipient and excellent choice.”

Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs across Canada work to better their communities, enhance the well-being of Canadians, and improve the environment. Sue Gallant has been involved with the Summerside Kinettes for 22 years and has served as President of the club for the past 16 years. She is also the co-chair of the Kinsman Christmas Appeal which provides hampers of toys, clothing and food for 200 to 225 families and seniors over the holidays.

Sue always finds the time and energy to help in the community. It was noted that after the names for the hampers have been chosen and the donation money is spent, Sue has such a big heart that she often personally purchases items to support others in need.

The nominating committee read, “If I had to describe Sue, my first thought would be caring. She has the biggest heart of anyone I know. She is also very humble. She doesn’t do what she does for the recognition. She does it for the pure joy of helping others.”
