My team went to Tango Camp, a village where more than 400 families live. 50 families (15 widows & 35 ultra-poor families) were identified. The team will continue identifying more families for the food drive and will be added to this #Thread

The team went door to door & inside the houses. This little brave girl explained their financial situation. Her father goes out every morning in hopes to find work. He returns empty hands. They have little food to survive. Plz help such families with food. 3/X #SaveAfghanistan

1) 5 packages distributed today through @ASEELApp (51 members in 5 families). We solely depend on your contributions, contribute more & we will reach to more families. I still require 9 food packages for 20 identified families needing food urgently. #SaveAfghanistan #Afghanistan ImageImageImageImage
2) Note: Tonight evening I went to a store to buy milk for my kid. I saw a little girl (prbbly 10 years old) asking the staff to give her sugar for ten Afs (0.10$). He give him very little. I asked the girl, why only sugar. She added “I gathered bread all the day, and with this Image
3) sugar, we will make tea, and have our dinner”. I asked her address, and she was afraid. I didn’t have enough money atm, but I did buy her green tea, sugar, and little beans. I couldn’t take her photo in the store as it could attract attention towards me. I couldn’t follow her

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

This evening at 4:45pm we got a call from a social worker that works with seniors. She called us in a frenzy asking us for immediate help.

She told us of an emergency so extreme that her voice shook with concern over one of her clients.

#YYC #Calgary #CalgarySeniors #hope
This is what she said:

"Hello Jen, I was hoping I would be able to contact you before I left my work for the day in regards to a rather important situation that came across my desk this afternoon. I hope you have the time to chat?"

I said "Yes of course, how can we help?" #care
She said "We have a senior lady that is struggling so much that she has been going door to door asking for food from others in her complex."

I was quiet and honestly speechless.

I said "Of course we can and we will help. What is it that you need." #FEEDYYC #FoodHamper #helping

Jen here, I am currently waiting for my car 2 warm up 2 be able 2 drive 2 a home in #Martindale to pick up & drive a mom & young son to the Children’s Hospital.

She needed a ride & did not have enough money to pay for a cab.

So the #volunteer on call called me for #help. #YYC
So soon I will be heading to the Children’s Hospital 🏥 & hoping that this young mans eardrum did not burst, as his mom said that this will be his 4th or 5th ear infection just this year. Mom is alone here in #YYC as she just moved here from #GrandPrairie in January of this year.
Now the #car is #warm & I’m off! I will #update everyone after I am back home! #HelpingOthers #DoAGoodDeed #community #Support #YYCCares #AlbertaCares #CalgaryCares #CanadaCares

Someone messaged us and asked us what the total would be to help everyone that is currently on our list.

To help everyone on our list we would need a total amount of $2435.00

That amount would let us fill all 23 hamper requests.
If anyone could help us reach that total, we could then put the minds of 23 families at ease because then they would not have to worry about having to feed their families. Having to feed their children. Having to go without eating just so they can make the food they do have last
You can help by donating to us or any other organization that feeds Calgarians in need.

If you would like to donate to us you can send an etransfer to:

I just got DM’d by one of the families who were recipients of a “Gift Card” from @RajanJSaw office. They were given $100.00 in gift cards and that barely covered diapers and formula and left nothing over for food. Plus they had to then find a way to the grocery store.
And by the way if you are on Alberta Works and or AISH...you have to report to your worker that you received such a gift. And that could affect your monthly cheque.
That’s why HHCC does what they do. They tailor it to the family. They do the shopping so the families and or single parents don’t have to take everyone to the store for shopping. Especially in this #COVID19AB climate. After shopping, HHCC delivers the food hamper to the families.

Good News: The Young Mom is safe and sound.

Even Better News: The powered wheelchair is being delivered NEXT WEEK to the young woman who is a double amputee and has been waiting for a chair from the @YourAlberta & @RajanJSaw office... for an extremely long time.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who have made all this happen. To the @HarvestHillsYYC team of volunteers, @GrannyGTArp and @EveryAlbertan and also @paul_yyc as well! Without all these awesome people...doing what they do...all of this may not have happened! 😊 So thank you!
On another note, I don’t like begging 🥺 but in this case I am. If you can help...please do as all the team @HarvestHillsYYC is looking for is $475.00.

This is for two medium families. If you can donate I am sure ANY AMOUNT is and would be welcome.

*⚠️Thread Warning: Long Thread⚠️*

Speaking bluntly here: We have seen an dramatic increase in requests for help/assistance due to:
1.) CERB ending and “Transitioning” individuals over to EI. Only problem is many Albertans will not qualify.

With CERB ending and many of the 4million plus people not being able to qualify for EI, we will see a lot of problems happening for Albertans.
2.) With the recent changes to AISH and Alberta Works, many are left feeling bewildered and scared.

Many have had their peace of mind taken from them by having things like aides to daily living & medications that were once covered, but aren’t covered anymore just to name a few

To find out a little bit about what we do here’s the readers digest version. 1/?
We here at @HarvestHillsYYC, provide a one time food hamper to any individual, family or senior in need of food assistance. 2/?
We do an intake with the family and do our best to verify need and how emergent their need is. Whether they are ASAP Emergency(1 to 4 days of food left), Immediate Emergency (5 to 7 days of food left), Important Need (8 to 14 days of food left). 3/?

We have a new family just arrived to #YYC before #Covid_19 hit #Calgary that needs @HarvestHillsYYC and @Hell_Berta’S help. He is a father of four that needs help paying rent or he will face eviction Aug 1st.
His rent is $1300.00 with everything included. He has been laid off from his job only to be told that he is not able to return due to his place of employment going under.
I will match each and every donation. I’d like to raise enough money to pay his rent for two months. That should give him enough time to find gainful employment.

Ok everyone: All HHCC needs is $500.00 to be able to purchase an iPad for a sweet and gentle 13 year old young man who is severely autistic.

I would like to do something special for this family. In addition to buying a new iPad for him, I would also like to get him a case too.
If you can donate to this young man and his family, you can send an etransfer to:

HarvestHillsCaresCalgary@Gmail.Com

Anything left over will be used to purchase materials and items that his parents can use for him. Items such as sensory toys and hopefully a weighted blanket.

Our mission at the Kids Being Kids Foundation is to improve the welfare and #development of the most #vulnerablechildren through play and extra-curricular activities.
A part of this is their physical #environment, which studies have shown profoundly influences developmental outcomes including academic achievement, cognitive, social and emotional #development.
One of the #vulnerable groups we want to support are the #Children of the Wesley School for the #hearingimpaired in Surulere. Their #landscaping is in dire need of a facelift.

***Reposted with permission*** (identifying information removed)

Early this afternoon I received a dm from a single father who was begging for help for not himself but his children.
His common law partner left him and their three children earlier this month and refuses to return. He wrote to me begging for help because he has not been able to find work in order to support his children since he is now raising them on his own.
He didn’t ask for fast food or junk food or crap food, but asked for groceries that would allow him the make healthy meals and snacks for his children. All he asked for is items that would allow him to help his children.
