Phone BuddyMelissa at Dogwood was working on this, but we are now accelerating the launch. The program is intended to provide seniors with somebody to talk to on a regular basis. We have already had some calls from people wanting to be volunteers, but if this is of interest to you, visit www.coquitlam.ca/volunteers or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.If you feel that you, or anybody you know, could benefit from this program, please contact Glen Pine at 604-927-6940. Please note that there is minimal staff still at Glen Pine. They are running on reduced hours at the centre, and working from home when possible. So it would be best to call between 9am and 1pm Monday to Friday. The voicemail says the centre is closed, but if you press 4, somebody may be around to pick up your call.Meals for SeniorsWe had shut down the kitchens for a bit, but recognized that there are seniors out there would may be having issues accessing food. So today, Coquitlam seniors can sign up to purchase nutritious frozen meals and have them delivered. The meals are $7.50 and delivered on Tuesdays and Fridays. The meals are intended to help seniors stay healthy and reduce their need to go out.Meals will change each week. For the current menu or to order, contact Glen Pine Pavilion at 604-927-6940 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mondays for Tuesday deliveries, or from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday for Friday deliveries. Payment is by credit card over the phone as we want to avoid payments at the door.———————————————————————
