How you can help in your community during this time.

Food Bank Donations

Food Donations are down & Demand is up. The food bank needs canned meats, canned tuna & salmon, pork & beans, rice, & other non-perishable items--or better yet--Cash, as this is better for their buying power.

Donate Blood Our hospitals still need blood supply for regular operations. Do a google search for Blood Donations in your area to find a location. In Canada go to https://blood. Challenge your family members to give blood.

Stay at home and clean surfaces at home

Wash your hands often

Physical distance while staying in touch. Keep social contact with family & friends by phone or video, or facetime.

Beware of the many COVID-19 Frauds & Scams out there now.

Don’t go stir crazy. Use the time to learn a new hobby; Take a look at YouTube videos to learn new skills; Make a list of inspirational quotes; Do a puzzle or read a book; watch movies on Netflix or Crave; or clean out some closets, Start a garden, Clean out your storage space or garage; Write, Read, and try to enjoy the luxury of the time you have with family.

Keep in touch with family, friends, & neighbours. My neighbours meet every day, making sure they keep the social distance required by the pandemic.

Be nice. Stay Calm and Smile.

Send an e-flower bouquet to a friend to say Hi! & then to more friends.
