A Need to Feed
Amanda Bauer was fairly new to Lethbridge when she started this initiative to help those in need in our community. Not quite a Lethbridgian for a year, her Feed the Need project has begun to spread like wildfire across the city and Southern Alberta. Since this article was published, more Feed the Need boxes have been established. Learn more about this project, where you can find a box, or how you can get involved.
VocaliD is program that was created to help those living voiceless or relying on a machine to talk, to speak with their own unique vocal identity. Volunteers record various phrases and sounds over the course of a few sessions and donate their voice to the voice bank. The sound of the donor voice is then matched with a recipient. Volunteer Lethbridge has established a partnership with VocaliD and has dubbed it the Human Voice Drive. Now, CKXU, the U of L Students Union, and Volunteer Lethbridge are joining forces to put on a voice drive at the uni!
