Job losses. Business closures. Financial uncertainty. Mental health struggles.
These challenging situations have become a hard reality for many people in our community over the past several months, but the City of Chestermere wants residents to know that they don’t have to face those challenges alone.
“We know that the past several months have been particularly challenging for many families in our city,” says Danielle Fermin, the City’s Manager of Community Support Services. “That’s why, throughout the month of March, we are going to be featuring organizations and support services available to all residents through a campaign called Chestermere Cares.”
The campaign, held on the City’s Facebook and Instagram pages, will feature a different social support each day and provide information on how residents can get connected to those resources.
“There are many supports available so we hope you will follow along this month to learn a little more about how Chestermere Cares for you,” says Fermin.
The resources to be featured include emergency financial support programs like the City’s Gifts of Kindness campaign, emergency resource programs like those offered by the Chestermere Food Bank, mental health supports like Stepping Stones to Mental Health, and many more programs and organizations.
For those who are not in need of assistance but would like to offer support, the daily feature will also offer information about how to get involved or donate.
