“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

- Maya Angelou

A new initiative provided through Wetaskiwin FCSS and numerous dedicated volunteers - we aim to help spread a little bit of joy in our community through Consistent Acts of Kindness and Empathy (CAKE),

and encourage you to help us by paying it forward! Every month, FCSS and a group of volunteers will create and distribute small gifts randomly throughout the community. We hope to brighten your day, and encourage you to spread some happiness too!

A CSWB strategy aims to bring key community stakeholders together to identify concerns and challenges related to safety and well-being, and to implement proactive approaches to address them.

What is well-being? 

Well-being is a measure of your quality of life and the things that are important to you. Better quality of life has been shown to result in improved physical and mental health. Well-being includes such things as feeling safe, feeling connected to your community, and being able to participate fully in the activities you love. Your access to quality food and shelter, public transportation, the Internet, parks and the natural environment, clean water and health care impact your well-being.
