Community Support Connections continues to monitor and assess new developments pertaining to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The health and safety of our clients, volunteers, event attendees, and staff are of paramount importance to us, and we are taking proactive measures to ensure we help mitigate the risks of COVID-19 exposure, and do our part as an organisation to ‘flatten the curve’ of the outbreak.
In light of current developments and health directives, we are saddened to announce that it is no longer reasonable to expect we will be able to host Tacofest, an important fundraising event with hundreds of attendees, this June as scheduled. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and are consulting with all of our amazing vendors, donors, and sponsors in the interest of exploring and developing alternative options.
We have always been thrilled by the overwhelming enthusiasm for Tacofest, the outpouring of support it has generated for Community Support Connections, and the support we have, in turn, be able to provide to our local community’s restaurants and breweries. It is our desire to further support our partners through the duration of this pandemic, and provide a truly phenomenal event for our community when it is safe and reasonable to do so.
During this time, please consider exploring ways you can support our local restaurants and breweries, such as through on-line ordering for pick-ups and deliveries. If you haven’t already, follow us on our social media as we continue to share their most current offerings.
Likewise, we invite you to consider ways you can support Community Support Connections in this time, as we see an increase in seniors turning to us for support. Our current priority is providing nutrition to those who need it to stay healthy and safe in their own homes. You can make a donation to our organization to help get food to local seniors, or volunteer to deliver hot meals or groceries to clients’ doors, with safe, no-contact training provided. Thank-you as we endeavour to care for some of our most vulnerable, high-risk community members.
From all of us at Tacofest, we hope all of you are keeping healthy, safe, and well!
