Windsor Girl To Be Honoured At Rideau Hall By The Governor General
A Windsor girl is among 39 recipients who will be honoured during a ceremony at Rideau Hall on Thursday, April 25th, 2019.
At the age of six, Maya Mikhael created Maya’s Friends to coordinate youth-run events to feed the hungry and homeless in the Windsor-Essex region. Since 2012, her annual lemonade stand has amassed canned goods and thousands of dollars for local food banks.
Through other initiatives like charity walks, she has raised awareness of and financial support for the sick, the elderly and the poor.
Mikhael will be presented with the Canadian Honers Sovereign Medal For Volunteers by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada.
