“I commit to Head & Hands because as a mother it breaks my heart to think of young people in need with no resources. It is a little bit to help ensure they have a resource in Head & Hands.” – Rachelle
Monthly donor Rachelle Henderson first found out about Head & Hands as a reporter for the Gazette in the 1980s. Today, Rachelle is one busy monthly! Not only does she work at Air Canada as a labour and employment lawyer, she is the mother of two children, and an avid reader and tennis player. Oh, and did we mention that she volunteers at the Head & Hands legal clinics? We caught Rachelle at her Head & Hands volunteer post for a quick pic, and then got the scoop on what makes this power-monthly tick!
