Earlier today we were in downtown #yyc handing out water & gatorade and fruit, when we decided to stop & have a break by the Cat Cafe...when we came upon a senior lady rummaging through the city's garbage bins.

We thought she was looking for bottles to turn in for money but we were wrong. She was looking for both bottles & she was also taking food out of the bins & putting it in her cart.

As soon as we saw that we went over to offer her our help.

#Help #Community #Compassion #BeKind
We went over, asked if we could get her a cold drink & a snack & asked her if she'd like to join us on our break.

She accepted. We went into the coffee shop across from the Cat Cafe (Forgot Name), grabbed some drinks & snacks and sat down in the shade across the street. #Hope

We have a serious emergency.

Late this afternoon we were contacted by a senior named “Helen”. She only had one meal left in her kitchen.

She called us for help and we are helping.

We will be using the last of our available funds to get her some much needed groceries. #YYC #YEG
We will hopefully be giving her enough groceries for an entire month so she doesn’t have to worry about having to choose between medications/food, food/electricity, food/rent.

Too many #Calgarians are being ignored and forgotten. Too many #Calgarians are afraid to ask for #help.
We need help. If anyone can help with a donation towards her food hamper, we will be here for about 2 more hours because we are shopping for four seniors tonight.

Critical care economy workers in West Virginia are 85% female and paid on average just $10.93/HR. The #AmericanJobsPlan would create good paying #union jobs that would make a difference for workers, as well as seniors & consumers. #CareIsEssential @JoeManchinWV @Sen_JoeManchin
Call your legislators with the U.S. Congress at 877-689-2371 to share your support. #CareIsEssential

We’re proud to be home care workers doing the work of keeping seniors and people with disabilities safe in the pandemic. Call 877-689-2371 today and tell Congress to support the #AmericanJobsPlan to create good #union home care jobs. #CareIsEssential @JoeManchinWV @Sen_JoeManchin
The American Jobs Plan would help working West Virginians like me by... "Putting care workers like me at the center of economic recovery. That's how we Build Back Better!"
