Great Neighbours COVID-19 Outreach
Isolation Check-in and Grocery & Prescription Delivery
The community of Olds is full of citizens always willing to help when needed. We are currently experiencing some very trying times for many people in our community. The Great Neighbours program is helping to reach out to those who are isolated in our community.
Connecting our community through acts of kindness
If someone is isolated and would like someone to check in with them regularly, we can connect. We have are in contact with the local groups and grocery stores ensure delivery of essentials to those who are isolated at home.
Remember a time when we used to know our neighbours? It doesn't have to be a thing of the past!

- Introduce other neighbours to each other.
- Keep an eye out on neighbourhood homes and property.
- Host a BBQ.
- Plan a Block Party.
