The Princess Shop Welcomes New Volunteers for the New Year!

posted by The Princess Shop    |   December 16, 2015 15:47

Like most non-profit organizations, the heartbeat of what we do is fueled by the energy and selflessness of the volunteeers who give their time to us week after week. 2015 has been a big year for The Princess Shop, we've had many successes along the way. But like anything we've also had our challenges, and this year that meant finding the right volunteers to carry forward our mission of being one of Saskatoon's BEST non-profit organizations

Good things come to those who wait, which is why we are so excited to announce the newest Princess Shop volunteers, Morgan McEachern (Volunteer Representative), Chandra Groves (Communications Coordinator), and Kim Julicher (Fundraising Coordinator).

Meet the lovely Morgan McEachern. Morgan, originally from small-town Lanigan, Saskatchewan relocated to Saskatoon for University in 2013. Morgan is one of those people that warms up the room with her smile, and makes those around her feel welcome and comfortable, all great attributes for our Volunteer Representative position!

 

Morgan is as bright as she is warm, as she is currently working towards both a Bachelor of Science Degree in Geology and a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the Edwards School of Business. Outside of her studies, and volunteer work with The Princess Shop in Saskatoon, she is also employed by the University of Saskatchewan's Science Outreach Program teaching Math and Science concepts in community schools in Saskatoon. She is delighted to be contributing to The Princess Shop community so she can make a difference in the lives of young women in Saskatoon.

 

 Chandra Groves joins The Princess Shop team in the role of Volunteer Communications Coordinator. She's followed the success of The Princess Shop as a great Saskatoon organization, and has seen the impact that it has made in the community over the years. Chandra said when the opportunity presented itself to join, she knew it was the perfect way to play a part in giving back to our community, while utilizing her strengths as a Communications professional. Chandra attained degrees in business and communications from the University of Jamestown in North Dakota in 2009 where she played on a volleyball scholarship. She has spent the last 6 years cultivating as many opportunities for professional growth as possible; from opening a business here in Saskatoon, to documenting her world travels with her own travel blog and website (www.chandragroves.com), to continuing education with a graphic design course in the summer of 2015. Chandra is a self-proclaimed hoarder of experiences. She loves to do photography, write, play music, and she loves pretty much every outdoor adventure. If she's not exploring the land of living skies, you will often find her with a backpack or a snowboard in the Rocky Mountains. 

And last, but certainly not least, we are so excited to be welcoming Kim Julicher our new Fundraising Coordinator. Kim was born and raised in Saskatoon and attended post secondary studies for Food and Hospitality Management in BC. She has since returned home to Saskatoon where she is the Assistant Food and Beverage Manager at the Saskatoon Club. Kim is an extremely hard worker and she loves having the ability to work and volunteer with  groups that offer a positive social outlet for a great purpose. Kim is thrilled to be joining The Princess Shop in Saskatoon as the volunteer Fundraising Coordinator. Outside of work and volunteering, her passions include cultural exploration- both local and international, and her friends and family.

We are still looking to fill two of our Volunteer Roles for 2016. To learn more about this great organization and how you can get involved, contact us today! As always, find us on facebook, twitter, and instagram to stay up to date on the latest and greatest Princess Shop happenings.

Cameco Corporation back as Diamond Sponsor of the Dress Program

Cameco's community focus on Youth, Education & Literacy, Health & Wellness, and Community Development provides an excellent fit with our Dress Program. We are so happy to have them back as a Diamond Sponsor of the Dress Program for a third year so we can continue to provide an enhanced graduation experience for disadvantaged women.

Our mission extends beyond the graduation day to supporting these amazing women after high school with a mentorship program (Fairy Godmother Program) and a program that offers scholarships/bursaries, a work placement, and skill development opportunities (Next Chapter Program). At The Princess Shop, we want to encourage learning and development at this very important time of a young woman's life. Having Cameco's support of the Dress Program ensures the opportunity for us to work with Princess Graduates after high school.

Thank you, Cameco!

Graduation season is in full swing!

Although The Princess Shop has expanded since 2007 to offer the Fairy Godmother Program (a mentorship program) and the Next Chapter Program (a scholarship and work placement program), the touchstone of our organization has always been the Dress Program

The Princess Shop provides female students in need with an enhanced graduation experience free of charge by lending gowns and accessories donated by our community, allowing them to feel confident and proud on their graduation day. The Princess Shop believes that increasing the self-confidence of young women on this transitional day has a huge impact on their future pursuit of success. Our whole community benefits when young women are supported and celebrated.

The Dress Program is a huge success in part thanks to our amazing sponsors. Thanks to our Diamond Sponsors: Cameco, Kinsmen and SIGA. And a huge thank you to our Dress Program Graduation Services donors, who make graduation days happen! These donors include: Spa Academy, MC College, Blossoms Living, Provincial Car Service, and photography services by Wanda Keen.

If you are interested in becoming a Princess Graduate, apply to be part of our Dress Program.
