COVID-Virtual Activity Pods
Funded by the Government of Canada, New Horizons for Seniors Program, our COVID-Virtual Activity Pod Program aimed to engage seniors in virtual volunteering to reduce social isolation during social distancing restrictions as a result of COVID-19.
Any senior (55+) from across the City of Greater Sudbury was welcome to participate in our Pod Program, which has now wrapped up.
Information About the Program
We were thankful to have been awarded a grant from the Government of Canada through the New Horizons for Seniors Program to help fund this new volunteer program! Through this grant, we were able to involve seniors in a variety of fun volunteering activities while adhering to COVID-19 distancing restrictions.
Our Pods groups worked on many amazing volunteer projects like collecting winter wear for local warming centres, knitting winter wear to donate to local schools, creating thank you cards for frontline workers, writing letters to seniors in isolation, and collecting food donations for local food banks.
How to Register
Registration remained open throughout the duration of the program, but unfortunately this program has now wrapped up and we are no longer accepting new volunteers.
