Giving back to our community: Toronto Star article

December 19, 2008 • Print This Article

We received some positive coverage in the Toronto Star recently. John Andras was recognized for his ongoing anti-poverty work with Toronto's poor and homeless. From the article:

For Andras, 49, the influential moment came nearly 30 years ago, when he took a year off university to work in a mine in Red Lake, Ont. "At that time a lot of the miners were ex-cons and people who couldn't fit into the urban environment. A lot were illiterate. I had been to university so they called me 'professor.' I ended up teaching some of them how to read." He learned something, too: that luck and circumstance can make a big difference in how life turns out. "It was eye-opening for me, because up to that point I'd lived a sheltered, privileged existence." His prominent father, K.B. (Kenneth Bertram) Andras, was a founder of Care Canada. "Dad believed that one would be ultimately judged not by how wealthy and famous you were, but by how much you gave back to society," says Andras.
