Penticton enhances Toolkit to connect residents in need with help in community

News Release

The City of Penticton has enhanced its COVID-19 Support Toolkit to include resources to connect residents in need with help within the community. This includes information involving local shopping and delivery services, volunteer organizations and mental health hotlines.  

In addition, the Toolkit, at penticton.ca/covid19toolkit, offers a variety of ways residents can give back to the community, whether it’s donating to the Salvation Army Food Bank or volunteering to help local seniors. 

“During these times of crisis, we know there are people who are no longer able to conduct everyday tasks. This Toolkit offers a local resource that residents can use to find the help they need during these challenging times,” said Penticton Mayor, John Vassilaki. “We would like to remind everyone to be a good neighbour and watch out for those around you. We’re all in this together.”

The Support Toolkit is also a source of information for workers, individuals and businesses affected by COVID-19. The website is continually being updated with new information as details emerge.
