You Care We Care - Supporting Frontline Staff

You Care We Care Initiative - Calgary

The goal of this initiative is to show staff in the social services sector, that since they care for individuals we care for them. 

I thought I would start by doing a few gifts a month for staff. Since October I have delivered 14 gifts.  I try to personalize them and they are always a surprise. The idea is to give back to non-profit and social services staff who need a bit of a reminder they matter. We all know how hard the work can be and it is even more so now with the pandemic. 

With the gifts that are purchased all money will be spent supporting local YYC businesses. 

The goal of this campaign is to be able to create a large amount of gift bags for frontline staff who are at risk every day especially those working in shelters, supported living situations and doing outreach. Any extra money raised will go towards keeping the personalized monthly gifts going. 

If you have any questions, want to suggest a local business or recommend a frontline worker then please contact me. 

My belief is we can always do better at supporting frontline staff. 

Thank you!
