Blog features series: Community-builders in COVID-19

Join the millions of people around the world who are choosing to spread a little bit of joy and seeking to amplify the connections that are happening, in neighbourhoods and communities, despite the distance we find between ourselves these days. 

We are watching as community members share acts of kindness, generosity and ways to connect – amidst this crisis. Let’s showcase the stories of just some of the people in our community who have done community-minded acts. 

During these challenging times, here are some stories of amazing people promoting connection and going above and beyond to support their community. 

Four simple questions 

To learn a little bit more about some of the people making a difference in Strathcona County, we have reached out and posed four simple questions to those who are actively building community during the crisis. 

Four simple Questions: 

  1. Could you tell me a little bit about yourself?

  2. You did something very generous of spirit during a very difficult time for our community – can you tell me why you decided to do _____?

  3. Can you tell me what community means to you? (follow up: What inspires you about our community?)

  4. If you could ask fellow Canadians to do one community-minded thing during this crisis, what would it be?
