Long before the Calgary Drop-In Centre installed a kindly donated state of the art sound system throughout our main floor, communities gathered to create and listen to music as a means of growing, bonding, and healing. A few millennia later, music is still a medium for wellness and community building. And while many Calgarians do not know it, the Calgary Drop-In Centre is Alberta’s best kept secret when it comes to world class musical performances. Through a combination of volunteerism and donations, every Friday night the Calgary Drop-In brings in musical acts both locally and travelling around the continent to provide a musical solace for our community.
I am pretty impressed with the service provided by ESS especially when I consider the various circumstances beyond your control that you may have to contend with! It is a huge relief to NOT spend my time completing a bunch of forms every time I need casual labour or spend my money paying an employment service; I could not afford to do that!
What is really amazing to me is that is every bit as effective, and even more efficient in providing casual labour than the employment services that charge!
