Singh & Loparco Win Peace Awards

The Saint John Y recognizing two champions of peace at a breakfast this morning.

Holly Singh is well known for many years in the restaurant business but, she is also very involved in helping new immigrants arriving here.

Singh says it started one year when the Y called about some immigrants who had arrived in Saint John really close to Christmas.

She says they called to see if they could feed these people because they would like the food they serve.
Singh says she told their staff about it and they wanted to help.

17 year old Julia Loparco win the Youth Peacemaker certificate. 

She is a busy student, athlete and volunteer who says she doesn't do it for the recognition, she just loves giving back.
