Calgarians step up to help people unable to leave their homes

A number of Calgarians are now offering to help people who are shut in due to growing concerns over COVID-19.

Richard Hardy put a post out on social media on Thursday offering to pick up people’s groceries and prescriptions and deliver them.

“We’re worried about those who may not be OK and we’d certainly like to help them out,” he said.

Hardy said the idea came to him when his own mother became ill with bronchitis in Winnipeg and he saw the long lines at some grocery stores.

“I’m fortunate that I have family that can support her and help her out,” he said. “But for those in a different situation, I thought it would be great for myself and my family to step up.”
