YOUR STORIES

Samantha Hoffman

Newmarket, Ontario

My family are my heroes at home all the time - not just during the COVID 19 crisis. They fully support my role in the fire service and know that it will at times take me away from them.

They have taken on extra responsibilities whether it be meal prep or household chores. When I am home they ask about my day and recognize those stressful days when I can't talk about it. They support my crazy need to clean and sterilize things. They offer unwavering support, lots of laugh and laughter and remind me every day of how lucky we are and how important it is to serve others and our community.
