The TGCA Community & COVID-19

Resources and Responsibilities in our community

April 6, 2020

Considering the seemingly ever-changing perspectives and risks of COVID-19and the closure of the centrethe TGCA has been trying to understand what our role can be at this unprecedented time for the community and our members. If you or someone you know needs help, we have volunteers that can help with deliveries, pickups, and possibly other tasks, as well. Please contact Kevin at 403-274-6840 ext. 130, or kkromm@tgcacalgary.com to reach out for help. 

We’ve had residents reach out about their anxieties and gratitude via Facebookto which we’ve done our best to encourage and then point them to organizations and agencies that may be better equipped to help. 

Resident have sent along some fun activities that virtually anyone can participate in, like the Thorncliffe Greenview Window Walk, in which parents and children have put stuffies or pictures in their windows for others to see and we’ve encouraged people to post their pictures on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Lots of fun!  

We donated food to Next Step Ministries, and they seemed mighty happy to take what had in our kitchens at the centre 

We’ve watched, as you have, as the world has become a somewhat unfamiliar place, and wondered what is instore in the future, but we know that neighbours helping neighbours is what builds strong communities and can get us all through the toughest of times.  

The City of Calgary has created some tips and guidelines that can help all of us see what we can do for one another and reach out should we need help or just a friendly gesture.
