For every gift given, there is someone on the receiving end. We are all in this together, helping each other as best we can.
Some of our members have been the recipient of the thoughtfulness and generosity of others. Here’s a shout out to them!
Carol Dilworth – “100 Women Who Care Guelph member Wendy Fletcher bought my groceries until I got onto the Zehrs drive through system. Steven Faehrmann, my cruise consultant, treated me to two dinners, delivered to the house. And yesterday there was a beautiful bouquet at my front door, anonymous.”
There are so many different and wonderful ways to reach out and help. See what some of our members have been doing.
Lisa Hood got her whole family involved in the effort by:
- checking into neighbours who live alone
- buying groceries for families in isolation
- dropping off food for friends who had a new baby two weeks ago
- raising money to keep the student food bank open
- donating blood (along with fellow member Tannis Sprott)
Encouragement is a tremendous gift. We are all showing our support of our front line health workers whenever we get the chance!
Lisa Hood got her kids involved, making chalk pictures outside GGH to thank the hospital workers.
Some of our members were able to continue with their contributions in spite of our cancelled meeting, picking their own favourite charities to receive their donation.
Eleanor Langdon gave to the Guelph Food Bank. (Thanks Eleanor, I’m sure it was much needed and gratefully received.)
Heather Coles – “I donated $200 to Food Banks Canada, which my generous employer is matching, resulting in a $400 donation!” (Now there’s a great idea, getting your employer involved, well done Heather.)
Carol Dilworth – “I gave to the hospital.” (Wonderfully done Carol, I’m sure it was greatly appreciated.)
