PARK's Covid-19 Response

As part of our ongoing COVID-19 response, the PARK team is raising money to help take care of the basic needs for Calgary's health care professionals and first responders. We are doing what we can to make their lives easier, their days a bit brighter, and to help them take care of their physical and mental well-being. This GoFundMe campaign will be used to purchase the items listed below.
