For the past 5 years Johnny De Bakker and co-founder Katie Ischkin have held the “IschKinakker Shaker” fundraiser event over the Christmas holidays in support of local charities with their young friends. In 2008 the event raised $11,300.00 which was given to the local Kidney Foundation. For many years Johnny has been a proud and active member of the local Rotaract Club, a youth Rotary Club. The Club has sent Johnny twice to Quadamala to build schools and churches. He was also a representative of the Territory NOWAS (Northern Ontario Student Association), member of Lakehead University Student Union and Scouts Canada. Johnny’s enthusiasm and spirit of volunteerism is an example for other young people in the community.
