There are starting to become some trends that are picking up steam, from Grocery Delivery to Caremonger, even companies creating necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs). We’ve spoken about a few incidents from different parts of the world, but how about we celebrate a little more locally!
Let’s start with the food need. There’s a man, Abhi Kantamneni, in Guelph who used his technological prowess and care for others to build the website Guelphcoronavirus.ca. It’s a site that compiles a list of volunteers and those in need. Allows people to donate, volunteer, find free meals, order food, connect with the community, practice wellness, find resources and supports, and care for pets. This was one man with a little assistance and a big hearted community.
Then in the Waterloo region, you’ll find that Suzie Taka created the group CareMongering-KW, a Facebook group where members can offer up grocery runs and pantry supply products to those who can’t leave their homes. A much simpler, but still essential service to the community at this time.
These are just a few of the ways people are helping people during this pandemic. You can learn more about these stories and others in your Good News Story of the Day; here. Hopefully these help to lift you up and keep you going in this time.
By the way, there is a CareMongering-Brantford Facebook group as well.
