Volunteer

Can you volunteer
to help your neighbours during Covid-19?

Can you deliver food from the Food Bank to residents?

Your community association hope you reply yes! 

 

OttawaCares cares for Cardinal Glen, Castle Heights, Lindenlea, New Edinburgh, Manor Park, Overbrook, Rockcliffe Park and Vanier. 

Together, we are organizing community- and Ward-wide responses to support the most vulnerable in our communities. Through this website – OttawaCares.ca – we have created an online destination especially for our communities.

Ottawa Cares is here to support friends and neighbours impacted by the spread of COVID-19.

Helping from Home

 

Lots that you can do!

  • Call your neighbours, friends and family.  Your friendly voice can make all the difference to someone’s day.

  • Donate to the Ottawa Food Bank.  The need for food in our community is growing weekly.

  • Explore this website for useful resources. This website is full of information and resources especially for our community.

  • Print and post.  Print copies of these posters (Help is Available  or Volunteers Needed).  While on a walk, tape it to lampposts. Place it in the rear window of your car. Share it on social media. Email it to your friends and family.

  • Help someone who needs help.  Guide anyone who needs food or social services to 2-1-1 (phone call), the Food Bank (food delivery) or OttawaCares.ca (community-based resources).​​​
