In these times of physical distancing, we are providing Spirit Bundle Offerings for First Nations, Metis and Inuit households to try to ease the challenges of physical isolation. As a community, we are braided together and as such AO wants to try and help as many households that we are able. The Spirit Bundle Offering currently is a bin of household items such as laundry soap, hand soap, cleaner, reusable rags, garbage bags, cedar, basic school supplies, toilet paper and Kleenex. There is also a binder of resources that can answers questions about Covid-19, mental health resources as well as some activities to do to keep bodies moving. We also have a partnership with Food Bank and Humane Society to meet food needs for humans and pets!
The bins can be picked up at 236 Woodhaven Rd., Kitchener or 11A Suffolk St. E, Guelph. If needed, we can also deliver the bin on our regular routes. The bin will be topped up each month if needed. As we continue to work with our donors, funders and partners, we will make every effort to match your future needs with our inventory.
Our staff have been reaching out to people as much as they can, but we want to ensure that people can access our bundles. You can reach us through all of our social media platforms, through our website and phone calls. You can also sign up through our online form. If you have any questions, please contact us!
