Community Care Services Summary; December 2021

Community Care; Be a Lifeline Donor

Community Care Response to Sayers Fire

Community Care will continue to support the grocery needs through our volunteer transportation program. We would like to remind you that free transportation services related to food security are in effect until we have a new grocery store, and encourage our community members to reach out if needed. We do require 2 business days’ notice to schedule a drive, and if assistance in planning is needed for shopping trips, our staff and volunteers are happy to help.  Call our Apsley office - (705)656-4589 or email through this link here  

Supports Available
  •  Shopping buddies are ready to help too.

If someone needs assistance getting their groceries, we have some volunteers who are ready to assist with this too.

  • Frozen Meals on Wheels options

Made available for anyone with an immediate need.  We have frozen meals in our freezer and we can make them available to anyone who needs immediate support.

For more information about these supports or have a special request, call our office - (705)656-4589 or email through this link here.
