What we do
Volunteer Delivery Support
The Good Neighbour Project offers volunteer delivery support in the GTA for isolated and vulnerable members of the community that are unable to support themselves and do not have access to a support system. As part of the delivery support, we can do foodbank hamper pick-ups, grocery shops for food and essential supplies and medication pick-up.
The criteria for those we support are:
Persons with disabilities
Our hotline is active from 10am-4pm, 7 days a week at 647-873-2230.
Care Calls provides mental health support and community-building for seniors experiencing isolation. Collaborating with community partners, Care Calls organizes public spaces for seniors to gather and meet others in their communities, partake in cultural activities and learn new skills. For those home-bound, seniors can call into Care Calls, where volunteers will assist them in connecting, digitally, with others or just chat with a volunteer.
Care Calls organizes:
- hotline for seniors that are looking to check-in and just have a friendly conversation (launching soon!)
- in-person social events
- virtual events and gatherings on zoom or conference call
If you are interested in participating in Care Calls, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since March of 2021, Good Neighbour Project has been actively working in York Weston Pelham as part of the City of Toronto’s Vaccine Equity Strategy. Our resident ambassadors have supported over 150,000 residents by providing vaccine information and organizing vaccine clinics.
We love partnering! Through collaborations, Good Neighbour Project has fundraised for hot meals and distributed them to low-income neighbourhoods, collect and distributed hygiene kits, delivered gifts to homeless shelters and organized food hamper builds amongst other activites. If you are a community organization that requires the assistance of our delivery support network or if you would like to collaborate with us, please send us an email at email@example.com
