Helping people stuck at home
due to the COVID-19 lockdown

Whether it's getting help for yourself or someone you know, our community is here to
support people stuck at home due to COVID-19. Through our website, neighbours, friends, family
and organizations can offer to and ask for help.

You, or someone you know, needs their groceries done, something collected or more. Speak to a rabbi or just a friendly ear. This is NOT a place to get medical help.

You can help your neighbours get groceries, offer support or something more.
