The Journey Neighbourhood Centre has had to all but close our doors during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been a difficult time for all of us in our community. The Journey has undertaken a few initiatives to try and make a difference:
- FOOD – We are now distributing basic prepacked food bags to our community on Thursdays (thanks to Regeneration Outreach Community).
- Information – Via our social media and website we are posting relevant and up-to-date information on a variety of topics including: financial compensation, school closings and health advisories.
- Resources – We are distributing family resources via our Little Library (long story, but the combination is 1, 2, 3) and also along with the prepackaged food distribution on Thursdays. Those resources consist of a variety of educational worksheets, colouring pages and family crafts.
- Care – We are directly contacting people in our community to check-in on how they are doing and we are also posting videos and inspiring stories to try and lift people’s spirits during the lockdown.
We continue to check our email and periodically phone messages. So, do not hesitate to contact us. Our door may be locked, but we are still here!
