This has been an especially difficult season for individuals living in Long Term Care Homes throughout Ontario.
Many residents are unable to see their families and are feeling the weight of loneliness and loss. We want to share some love and encouragement with them!
Our goal is to assemble 260 care bags that can be delivered to local Long Term Care Homes.
We would love your help!
Their tireless efforts since this pandemic started has been nothing short of heroic. Sometimes, they just need to know that we see them and appreciate them. Write a note or draw a picture. We’ll leave stacks of these at the stations and front desks together with baskets of snacks. Frontline workers can open up a note when they need a “pick me up”. Encourage someone’s heart today. They are doing incredible work to protect our community!
Thanks to you, we have been able to make a big impact to those on the streets by providing food through City Street Outreach. We are excited to be able to continue this partnership! Sign up to make sandwiches, baked goods, and hot meals for the homeless.
The COVID-19 crisis has significantly impacted access to basic necessities for many people, especially those in the developing world.

One of the toughest parts of self-isolation is the loneliness of being home without any outside connection. Our phone team calls and checks in on folks. Your phone call says “I care” and will bring much needed conversation to those who are feeling isolated. Let us know if you want to join the Phone Team.
