Local groups keep isolated Calgarians virtually connected during coronavirus
During the Covid-19 pandemic, our Alliance took action by connecting with people, supporting our community, and reaching out. LiveWire Calgary published a story about local groups supporting isolated Calgarians at the beginning of the pandemic, and you can review the article here.
The Calgary Alliance for the Common Good, along with many of Calgary’s social agencies, have helped deliver more than 3,000 electronic devices to Calgarians living without internet access.
Calgary Alliance for the Common Good’s spokesperson Rev. Anna Greenwood-Lee said they wanted to help isolated Calgarians feel connected with their community.
“We realized that everyone needs a life-line right now thought the internet, some people do (have it) but a lot of people don’t,” she said.
