In Overbrook we have our own group of neighbours helping neighbours during this difficult time. This group is called Overbrook Community cares.
We are also part of a broader initiative called Ottawa Cares :
Together, we are organizing community- and City Ward-wide responses to Covid-19.
We recruit volunteers to deliver food from the Food Bank to residents. And, where possible, facilitate wellness phone calls for those isolating at home during Covid-19.
We urge Ottawa residents to support the Ottawa Food Bank with donations.
Behind the scenes, we collect and curate information about community resources – business and not-for-profit – for 211ontario.ca, your guide to help in the city. We publish community resources available during Covid-19 to support the needs of residents and the livelihood of local businesses. And true to our roots, we refresh lists of activities to keep every age active and engaged during physical distancing.
