Neighbourhood Group Update

UPDATE: Wednesday January 13th, 2021

As per instruction from Wellington Dufferin Public Health, Onward Willow Neighbourhood Group will be closed to the public until further notice. This is to decrease our risk of spreading COVID-19 as cases continue to rise in Ontario and we are in lockdown. This is a trying time for everyone but please know we are here to help as we can. We are trying to find creative ways to distribute essential items to our community. If there is something you or anyone you know is in need of, please e-mail us (contact info below) or leave us a message at 519-824-6892.

If you require support of any kind, please reach out to the following people by text, email or phone call:

Susie Stauffer, Neighbourhood Support Worker onwardwillownsw@gmail.com

Lynne Kloostra, Parent Outreach Worker, 519-803-9072, lkloostra@guelphchc.ca

Shauna Brown, Neighbourhood group Assistant, 519-824-6892 shauna.owng@gmail.com

Please note: we are sorry to say we’re not able to accept any further donations at our centre at this time. If you have specific household items you would like to donate, please get in touch and we’ll do our best to arrange getting it out to someone in need. A huge thanks to everyone who contributed to our kids’ clothing drive, donated food and other essentials in this time of need. We couldn’t do it alone and we appreciate you all for your ongoing support and dedication to community.

KIDS’ GEAR: we have piles of kid’s winter gear: lots of brand new, warm jackets up to age 14, youth gear, hats, mitts, scarves, boots, shoes. Please reach out! Our clothing program is a city-wide service so you don’t have to live in the Onward Willow Neighbourhood to access this. This also applies to all ages: we are happy to put together packages of quality, seasonal clothing in specific sizes.

***Please remember to reach out first to make arrangements in order for us to continue being safe.
