DutiesPhysical 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. " 
Read about this project, visit the Guelph Today article.  
Help us by creating artwork or kind notes of encouragement and hope. Keep your messages general.  
Some examples:  
We hope this note find you well & brings you a smile  
Sending you good thoughts, Take Care 
We hope you are doing well, have a wonderful day 
Sending you good thoughts & a big smile 
We are thinking about you & hope you are well 
Have a Wonderful Day! 
Volunteers are encouraged to use plain card stock and art supplies, to get creative and decorate with markers, coloured pencils and/or stickers. In other words, unleash their compassion and creativity in an 1/4 page size. 
Please note: By returning artwork & notes to GCHC volunteers are releasing for GCHC use & may be photocopied or posted on Social Media
