|Duties||Physical distancing is helping to flatten the curve, but created more isolation. Note of Hope is an initiative to help clients & volunteer feel more connected to the community and the Guelph CHC. Volunteers are making it a special day by writing positive messages that are being sent to clients or included in Groceries from The SEED and Food Access deliveries. |
People that received the cards say things like:
"Last order I had delivered came with a "hope you are doing well" type card and it was perfect timing as my sister passed away the day before. Thank you so much for that card. I appreciate this service so much, thank you!" or "thanks for the cute little cards. I keep them on my fridge. "
