Letter to Stakeholders of Malvern Family Resource Centre
|The emergence and spread of the COVID-19 virus has very quickly changed the way the world operates and we want to let you know how Malvern Family Resource Centre is responding. We wanted to maintain our philosophy that our primary concern is the health and safety of all of our staff, volunteers and participants.
Being cognizant of our social responsibility, our organization has been closed to the public since March 18th. Seeing that we were deemed an essential service because we “support the provision of food, shelter, safety or protection, and/or social services and other necessities of life to economically disadvantaged and other vulnerable individuals”, we had to find other ways to continue programming.
As a result, we have since had to change the way we do business at the agency. This has been a challenge because it meant that staff had to be trained on using new technology to deliver programs on different mediums and social platforms. However, we embraced these challenges and continued to provide quality programs and services for the community, while adapting innovative ways to support and connect with residents.
In the meantime, we recognized some members of the community were becoming more distressed and anxious, and realized that there were new needs emerging for which we were not prepared. Food security, domestic violence, and mental health are now pressing issues which have come to the forefront and many are struggling with the ambiguity and despair brought on by the pandemic.
These are some of the most uncertain times many of us have ever experienced, and we are reaching out to our stakeholders for your support and donations. As you know, Malvern Family Resource Centre usually generates over 8% of its revenue from our fundraising events, program registrations, and rentals from the building. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we have been unable to have any of these activities which have reduced our income considerably, thus impacting our ability to provide additional resources.
As an agency, we hope to provide perspective during this time that will help us learn, grow and move forward. Your donation is critical in helping us achieve our goals and maintaining the strength of the agency as we continue to serve vulnerable families and individuals in the community. Your ongoing support of Malvern Family Resource Centre is deeply appreciated. If you have any questions, or if you just want more details on how we have been impacted by COVID-19, please contact us at 416-284-4184.
