Message from Morguard
On Sunday, April 25th our beloved friend Shawn Riley passed away suddenly and unexpectedly after contracting COVID-19. He leaves behind his sister, Megan. We are completely heart-broken over this news and would really like to do something to help alleviate some of the financial strain this will have on his family. A GoFundMe page has been set up by his family for anyone who is interested in helping donate any funds towards funeral costs, time off work, and other incidentals that they shouldn’t have to worry about during this time.
As we all know, this pandemic has taken its toll on families whether it has been financially, mentally, physically, etc. so we understand if you can’t donate. Alternatively, a quick share of this would mean the world and be greatly appreciated. Our hope for this page is that the Riley family will receive enough financial help to help them get through this difficult and unpredictable time

East Toronto Health Partners are hosting two virtual information sessions on their ETHP Advisory Group and volunteer opportunities.
The ETHP Advisory Group are volunteers who meet monthly over a one-year period to share perspectives as patients, family members/caregivers and community members. The objective is to improve how people access and receive health care in East Toronto. They are also looking for a wider pool of local residents to participate as volunteers in one-time future activities such as workshops, surveys and focus groups. ETHP will accept Advisory Group applications until Monday March 8. Registration for one-time activities is ongoing. Volunteer advisors need to reflect the diverse communities they serve. To apply or sign up, please visit their website before March 8th.
Sessions are: February 23 6pm to 7pm and March 3 12 pm to 1pm. Please see poster below for more info.
