The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the vulnerability of low-income families and elder populations across all communities. Due to preventative measures being taken to limit further spread of the virus, many people are facing financial pressure in accessing basic food and housing needs. Due to many low-income families facing temporary employment loss, they have very limited places they can turn to right now for financial support.
We are a group of neighbours who are raising money for families and elders who need assistance in affording groceries during this financially restricting time. It is in times like these that the power of community is needed most and we see opportunity to help those in need within the Calgary area.
With the money raised, we will deliver grocery store gift cards to families who have contacted us through email that need assistance. We are hoping to provide gift cards ranging from $20-$100 dependent on family size and received donations.
