The coronavirus pandemic has been rough on us all. The majority of us are sensibly practicing strict personal hygiene routines and social distancing – the latter of which often involves working from home. And while the world continues to combat the spread of COVID-19, there are those who are going the extra mile to provide services to those who are truly in need of help at tough times like this.
These days, true heroes come in the form of those who have started up volunteer community groups to offer support services to members of their communities. Their efforts include food delivery and grocery pickup for the elderly. Inspired by these amazing groups, this past Monday, MeloTel announced that it was offering free phone services to COVID-19 support groups
Today, we are pleased to announce the latest recipients of MeloTel’s sponsorship of free telephony. Please join us in celebrating these groups and sharing information about them with your community. Surely, you know of some people who can benefit from their generous assistance.

This awesome group was founded to ensure vulnerable community members and anyone in need has access to necessities. As part of Caremongers Whitby’s group rules, people are encouraged to use the hashtags #ISO when they’re “in search of” something; #Resource when they’re offering resources; #Done when a request is complete and no longer needs attention; and #Shop to identify where scarce resources can currently be found as a response to #ISO.
