Adapting in Light of the Pandemic

I have heard how many Conferences and Councils have adapted in light of the pandemic to continue serving people in need with protective measures in place including:

  • Food card drop offs or arranging appointments to have food cards picked up at the parish.
  • Sending digital gift cards.
  • Wellness calls checking in on people served and sharing available resources, as needed.
  • Serving bagged lunches or take out hot meals in place of community meals.
  • Youth in London doing the “On the Street” program offering hygiene products to the homeless.
  • Virtual meetings to stay connected with members of your Conference/Council.

Stores re-opened safely during the summer months and continue to help people in their communities following government guidelines with proper protocols in place. While the pandemic has brought about many challenges, it is also an opportunity for us to reflect and look at how we are serving our friends in need, and what we need to do to be able to continue helping them in the future.

A sincere thank you to all our members across Ontario for all that you do to carry out our mission of serving people in need and helping in all possible ways.
