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.

#Yyccc #Calgary #Alberta #Canada #SeniorLiving #seniorcare #Seniors
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

***Daily Update*** ***Emergency Help Needed***

I have been sitting here at my computer here for the past half hour deciding whether or not I wanted to post about what me and a few members of my team experienced today.
I was out shopping for our food hampers, when my phone rang.

Before I go on....I want to make it clear that Harvest Hills Cares Calgary's Phone will always be answered. The only time it won't be is if we are in a meeting or driving.
I answered the phone...It was a mom of 4 that was told by her worker to come down to the AB Works office to turn in her 90 days of bank statements...& that if she didn't bring them down by the end of the day she would not get her check until Tuesday of next week.

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:

HarvestHillsCaresCalgary@Gmail.Com

Thread: 1/?

Late last night we had someone phone us at 11:45pm. It was from a mom of 4 who herself had not eaten nothing 3 days just so she could make the food she did have last for her children.
This mom had gone to the food bank and gone to the brown bagging for kids as well has utilized the free meals that are handed out throughout the city.

This is a mom who has tried EVERYTHING to find a job and get help from different organizations and the government.
She went to Alberta Works and was told she had to go after the dad for child support before they could help her. They gave her papers on how to contact maintenance enforcement and how to go to court for child support. That’s great but that doesn’t help her now....

Yes I am still feeling sick. Yes I am still in iso. My hubby was kind enough to let me sit in his truck while he worked on it in the driveway! He said that way he can keep an eye on me and stop me from anymore online shopping!

We need your help. We have loads of people asking us for help due to the following:

-Job Loss
-Cant Pay Rent
-Cant Pay Utilities
-Cant Afford Medication
-Cant Afford Medical Supplies
-Cant Afford School Supplies/Fees
Having to choose between Food and any of the above items should not happen and isnt right.

Simply giving someone, a family, a couple, a senior food security for even just a month...takes immense stress off of a person.
That’s why there are great organizations and groups like the @CalgaryFoodBank & @HarvestHillsYYC

Everyone works together and does what they need to do for the city that we all care about so much.

*⚠️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

Ok @Twitter You want to know “What’s Happening?” Well I’ll tell you!

We @HarvestHillsYYC woke up this morning to a bunch of emails and texts and voicemails from AISH clients who have:
A.) Not gotten their AISH payment.
B.) Got their AISH payment but it wasn’t the full amount.
C.) Didn’t get their AISH payment and have been frantically trying to call the support line to talk to anyone or get ahold of their worker...only to not get a call back.
We are working as fast as we can to sort everyone who had asked us for help into our respective categories, and if we have permission from anyone to share a story about their situation we will. But until then all we can say is this:

Buckle up butter cup - Mr. Sanchez is here for YOU!

Now let’s just cut to the chase. Everyone wants to win. YOU want to win!

You, like me, look around all these segmented Twitter corners seein all this abundance & want a piece too!

Now you might be saying - hey, aren’t you *already* winning, Jay?

Yes -however there are levels. And as my best friend does his Martial Science school-cannot move up without givin back. Training those to rise up and stand on their own - achieving their goals.

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.
