ONE CARE is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by offering new services, supporting people with the most need, and ensuring appropriate safety measures are in place, such as equipment like face masks – and we need your help.
During this pandemic, ONE CARE continues to provide essential services to our community and has refocused our efforts to ensure that the most pressing needs of our seniors, and individuals with health challenges, are met. We continue to provide personal support to clients in home, and are seeing a significant increase in the need to support food services for our vulnerable populations. We have responded by increasing the capacity of our Meals on Wheels program, adding bulk frozen meal curbside pick up, and starting a program to provide Grocery Delivery, and continuing services like in home personal support and respite. We are committed to ensuring that vulnerable people in our community receive these essential services, and that cost does not become a barrier. We very much appreciate the support we receive from the community, and are grateful for any donations to help us as we respond to the needs of our community during the pandemic. We are grateful for your support.
The net proceeds from all fundraising efforts continue to support important programs such as those mentioned above by ensuring that appropriate equipment is available and that the cost to operate the program does not become a barrier Client Subsidy and Program Supports – Cost should not be a barrier to receiving the care that our clients need. While we are able to offer some of our programs free of charge, for some we require fees for service which helps us offset reimbursing volunteer mileage, or pay for rising food or gas costs. For programs like Meals on Wheels, Grocery Delivery, Transportation, Respite services and Home Help, your donation helps to reduce the costs to ensure our services are accessible to anyone who needs them, regardless of their financial situation. By donating to ONE, you can support some of our most vulnerable neighbours when they need it most.
Essential Program Equipment – Many of our programs require equipment in order to provide these essential services to our clients and our funding does not cover the costs of many of these items. We continue to drive individuals to medical appointments and provide other essential travel. Tools for Footcare, protective masks, food cooler bags and exercise equipment are just a few other examples of items that we need support to purchase and maintain.
