Caremongering-Kamloops is a 100% volunteer-driven team intent on bringing the community together to share resources and ultimately support each other during this crisis through fun and inventive ways. We are here to help maintain a positive energy, and seek a positive outcome as we work to the goal of “slowing the curve” and beyond when the crisis ends (and it will!).
Thank you for being part of Kamloops’ network of caremongering!
How It Started
On March 17, 2020, local woman AnnMarie Aase created a Facebook Group, Caremongering – Kamloops, inspired by what she was learning about the Caremongering movement across Canada. Within hours, the group’s page had exploded with offers of help and connection. The Facebook group continues to grow daily.
The next day, March 18, a coalition of volunteer activists who’d joined the Facebook group started to come together to envision and implement a systematic approach to coordinating the legendary generosity of Kamloops people with the needs of those who reach out for help and connection. This coalition’s vision eventually resulted in the Neighbour to Neighbour (N2N) network.
How Does N2N Work?
N2N connects people who want to help during this crisis with those who need it. Most of the services we’re offering can be conducted online or over the telephone, so feel free to sign up to help even if you are self-isolating.
Do you know someone who might want to request help but doesn’t have internet access? Please let them know that they can call the N2N Request Line at 778-696-2039 to talk with a volunteer who will take their request over the phone.
