« I have to be doing something, there is no idle time for me, » says Tanya. Tanya’s motto is to never let an opportunity pass you by and this is true in every aspect of her life. Tanya has been the charity captain for many years and is the SEA Coordinator. She spends hours researching, planning and preparing for events to make them unique, memorable and fun. Tanya makes crafts for the store’s charities, organizes raffles and hot dog sales to raise funds. She encourages colouring contests for kids knowing that they are the shoppers of tomorrow and will remember their pictures being hung in Safeway for everyone to see. Tanya’s sense of giving back comes from the heart. « My grandmother got polio and was in a wheelchair, » says Tanya. « I admire her because she never let being in a wheelchair stop her from doing the things she wanted. I try to be like her. »
