How to help vulnerable residents during pandemic

From picking up groceries to making a friendly phone call, there are many ways you can help vulnerable members of our community currently in self-isolation.

The new Stouffville Community Care Network can connect those in need of help with those willing to lend helping hands during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This new online tool personifies the spirit of generosity in our community,” Mayor Iain Lovatt said. “We have received countless emails, messages and phone calls from people in our community who want to help in one way or another. This webpage connects residents in need of assistance safely and easily with those nearby who are willing to lend a hand.”

If you or someone you know needs assistance or can provide help to vulnerable residents, register your interest at www.townofws.ca/communitycarenetwork and town staff will work to make a connection. If you don’t have access to a computer, you can call the mayor’s office at 905-640-1910, ext. 2227.

“This is how our community pulls together, puts their heads together and brings ideas to life to assist each other when help is needed most,” Lovatt said. “While we continue to face new challenges everyday with this pandemic, I want to thank you for your continuing support of your neighbours, our frontline workers and local business. We will get through this together.”
