What happens when pandemic hits? People collaborate and innovate!
Here in the Comox Valley, the CVTS PEACE Program (a free, confidential program for children and youth aged 3-18 who have experienced family violence) and the Too Good To Be Threw thrift store connected with the Comox Valley Lifelong Learning Centre, Comox Valley Child Development Association, PacificCARE and Comox Valley Family Services to put together Family Literacy Bags that include tips for caregivers and books, toys, games and craft supplies for the kids. Supplies were gathered and cleaned, information pamphlets prepared and printed, bags were stuffed and then delivered by the CV Family Services staff.
Information for caregivers include tips on:
> how to help you at home;
> how to maintain a normal routine;
> how to have conversations about coronavirus;
> things the kids can do to help them, their loved ones and neighbours stay safe;
> how to take care of yourself.
Remember: 💜 you are not alone 💜
