Mac Students COVID-19 Support Initiative - Volunteer Signup
UPDATE: We are in greatest need of people who are able and willing to provide child care. Please consider signing up for child care if you have experience in this domain and vulnerable sectors screening.
WHO/WHAT/WHY: This program is intended for healthcare workers in the GHA, Waterloo, and Niagara looking for support with life tasks outside the wards: childcare/babysitting, grocery runs, pharmacy runs, pet care, general errands, etc. We will do our best to connect them with current healthcare learners and hospital staff (that's you!) who are able to help. We ask that only medical, nursing, PT, OT, PA, SLP, midwifery, pharmacy, optometry students, residents, staff affiliated with HHS/SJH, ECEs, and teachers sign up for this initiative. If you do not fall into one of these categories but would like to help, please contact us.
HOW IT WORKS: Fill out this form with the types of tasks you are willing to help with and your general location/availability. After a healthcare worker submits their copy of this form, we will connect you to a suitable match.
