The Canadian Red Cross Friendly Calls program

The Canadian Red Cross Friendly Calls program helps address feelings of loneliness and isolation that so many are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program pairs a trained Red Cross volunteer with an adult who feels isolated or lonely, who may have limited social and family connections, or feels they could benefit from more social interaction.

Volunteers provide wellness checks and weekly phone calls and can help provide connections to community resources and other referral services.

Scheduled phone calls are tailored to meet each person’s needs. 

Calls can range from a two-minute check-in to a longer, more social chat.

People can participate in the program by contacting the program coordinator directly. 

Please call Lorri @ 1-204-542-0689.


Have a Wonderful Week!

Spread the Kindness where every you go!
