North Vancouver Cares - Fundraising for COVID Relief
From Jacquie McCarnan, a Vancouver localThe biggest challenge we have is finding those seniors and immuno-suppressed people that need our help but don’t know how to ask for it. I suspect that you have a lot a of folks that you deliver to that may be in that boat so maybe we could do something to engage them in North Van Cares and let them know that we offer all kinds of help that they may need, particularly going into the winter months.As a former graphic designer I am able to create any sort of public-facing brochures, booklets, one-sheets etc. I do all of the shirt designs and did the website.
My hope is that by finding these people we can offer some sort of long-term support system. The example I like to use is my own parents who live in Ontario. They’re 88 and 90 and fiercely independent but when COVID hit found themselves needing some extra help. They would never contact the United Way or any other social services agency. Thankfully there are family members there to help but what about those who don’t have that support system? Those are our people! :)
The Neighbourhood Shirt proceeds are going into one, big fund that will be distributed by committee voting
