COVID-19 Community Resources
March 27, 2020
If you need help with the pick up of groceries, prescriptions or other essentials, OR if you are a volunteer willing to help others in need, several grassroots initiatives have started in our community. To request assistance or offer your support, please contact the following groups directly.
Elk Valley COVID Support Team - Providing support with grocery and prescription delivery, emotional support and spiritual care
211 - 211 service will take calls from people who would like to volunteer to help seniors in their community with basic needs, including grocery shopping and pharmacy drop-offs and checkins. They will then share it with local community agencies to match seniors and volunteers who live in the same community.
Salvation Army Fernie – Proving food bank services.
Fernie Fresh Food Share – Providing access to fresh and healthy groceries for anyone in the community in partnership with the Salvation Army food bank.
