For those with the capacity to support others right now
First, a reminder that washing your hands, staying home when you can, physical distancing, and keeping yourself and your own family safe and healthy are the most important ways we can all be helping right now. But we know some of you have extra capacity and want to be able to do something more. So we’ve compiled this list of Regina-based organizations who are seeking donations and/or volunteers to help with their COVID-19 response efforts.
