The pandemic has impacted Chilliwack just as hard as any community around the world.
British Columbians continue to work hard to bring COVID-19’s second wave back down. Full vaccination is still some time away, but an end to this inconceivable time in our lives does grow closer.
Necessary isolation hits especially hard as the holidays come around. Among the most impacted groups is one of our most vulnerable – seniors. Some of them have not been able to see their loved ones for months, and with that isolation comes heartbreak, despair, or worse.
The Chilliwack Progress extends a call to action. We would like to dedicate space in upcoming issues at least until Christmas Day to personal messages from family to seniors who are in isolation. These should be no more than 50 words and can be addressed to a specific person or people, or general sentiments.
Submit your messages of love and care to firstname.lastname@example.org or via our website at www.theprogress.com.
This holiday season especially, we want to ensure no one is forgotten. Please join us!
