“Lynnette has great compassion for people and her desire to help people is evident through the 48,711 volunteer hours over more than 21 years with the Canadian Mental Health Association — Cariboo Chilcotin Branch,” said Janice Breck in her letter nominating Cobb for the award.
Cobb volunteers with CMHA’s crisis line, crisis line training program and face-to-face counselling program. She has also volunteered more than 3,000 hours with the RCMP Victim Services program and was an instrumental part of having Baker Manor, a supportive housing facility for people with disabilities, established in the city.
