All deliveries will be contactless (left on the porch), and repayment is either through Interac E-transfer or cash in the mailbox.

They currently have about 40 student volunteers and are actively recruiting for community members who could use some extra support. The participant sign-up form is here: Participant Sign-up. Community members can also email or call 613-817-7787
