Help connect seniors with their loved ones during the Covid-19 pandemic. Project Joy is a local initiative looking to collect gently used tech to donate to seniors facilities in Spruce Grove, Edmonton, St. Albert and Sherwood Park to help seniors connect with their loved ones through video chat. With physical distancing measures in place to reduce the spread of Covid-19 many seniors in facilities are increasingly isolated.
Project Joy has received many requests and are hoping to reach and help as many seniors as possible. Learn more about their initiative and donate at www.projectjoy.ca. (CTV Edmonton recently wrote about Project Joy, check out their news story.)
This initiative would not be successful without the support of their founding partners RJ Systems and Rapid Boost Marketing, and other community partners. Project Joy has also been very fortunate to have volunteers that are willing to provide their expertise and time.
Check those drawers for unused devices and help get the word out by resharing with others!

HELPING FAMILIES WALK OR WHEEL TO SCHOOL
Sept 23rd, 2020 - RSVP: http://www.michaeljanz.ca/walkorwheel (virtual event)
Join EPSB Trustee Michael Janz, Brian Torrance, Ever Active Schools, and other guests for a community conversation sharing resources and ideas on how to safely walk and wheel to school.
With the COVID19 pandemic and promotion of physical distancing, more families will be choosing to drive their children to school rather than take the bus. For our neighbourhoods, this will mean more congestion, traffic, stress, and chaos around our schools between pick-up and drop-off times.
For our children, this means more inactivity. Children will be sitting for longer in classrooms with limited opportunity for physical activity. Walking or wheeling — even part of the way to or from school — can have a positive impact on student achievement and overall wellbeing.
Join EPSB Trustee Michael Janz for a community conversation with EPSB parents about how we can promote public health by choosing to walk or wheel to school. How can we promote healthy schools and healthy communities? How can we grow already exciting and innovative approaches? How can we help community leagues and schools collaborate in a time of financial austerity?
Join us for conversations on tactics and strategies Edmonton area schools have implemented to encourage active transportation for all seasons. Topics could include:
