Organizing In Our Communities
It is important that we look after each other, especially those who are most vulnerable in our community.
We are asking you to volunteer for two roles:
1) Block Captain: We want you to claim your block, your floor or your building. It is a scale that is both human and manageable. It will involve dropping off a note to your neighbours with your contact information. Ask for contact information. Ask who will join your team. Map who is vulnerable. Then set up a means to communicate with each other, listen as issues emerge and help your neighbour when it is needed. This can all be done while keeping a physical distance. We will provide resources to help you along the way.
2) Community Helper: From our conversations with the City of Calgary, Alberta Health services and our members, it is clear that many of us will need a helping hand, especially those who are most vulnerable. Volunteer to be a Community Helper who can take on tasks such as, making phone calls or delivering food hampers and other essentials for people unable to leave their homes.
