Anil Maharaj

Officer Maharaj works in Durham North (Scugog, Uxbridge and Brock Township). I am nominating him for the Community Role Model award because he truly demonstrates that he cares about the residents in Durham North. For example, Officer Maharaj, his wife (a retired police officer) and his two daughters prepared a Christmas dinner with all the fixings at home, and then delivered it to the retirement residence in Sunderland on Christmas Day. This officer and his family celebrated Christmas not at their home but at a retirement residence. His act of kindness and the time he spent with the residents made a difference, especially for those who did not have family to spend Christmas with. Also, his community engagement is remarkable. Officer Maharaj does coffee chats at various venues in Durham North.
