We are living in extraordinary times. We know that the implications of COVID-19 on our society will be sustained and far-reaching. People with intellectual disabilities are one of the hardest-hit individuals and populations as self-isolation and containment methods continually increase. Community Living Toronto serves 4,000 people with intellectual disabilities, including 600 people in residential facilities. In addition, we have more than 1400 staff on the frontline determined to keep the people we support safe and engaged. As we move towards a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment, your gift will help the purchase of additional personal protective equipment like gloves, masks, and sanitizer to keep people safe as well as board games, gift cards, arts and craft supplies and board games to keep the children, youth and adults we support busy while practicing good physical distancing.
Know that your contribution makes a difference. It is clear that we are in this fight for the long haul, and we want our message to the community to be made loud and clear: you are cared for, and you are not alone.
