OUR COMMUNITY HEROES
iRover is a local grassroots team of volunteers offering 100% contactless delivery to help local restaurants through COVID-19. Sandra volunteered to lead the recruitment process of getting restaurants to sign up. Their service is no charge to the restaurants or the guests. Sandra also encourages and accept donations of canned goods and cash which is donated to Daily Bread Food Bank in Etobicoke. This service is entirely built with intention to help small restaurant owners stay afloat and keep a few staff employed during this pandemic, and helps less people be out getting take out as a result. She is also a scout leader and has volunteered her time at local community events. Sandra is an amazing, selfless person and we are so happy to honor her!

Michelle Beaton started the Neighbourhood Window Walk which encourages families to spend the morning decorating a window in their house with the theme of the day. Then, in the afternoon, head out for some fresh air and try to spot as many other decorated windows as possible in their communities. Thank you, Michelle, for your positivity & creativity!
