Protective Equipment for our Frontline Healthcare Workers

covid-19 PPE

Help prepare our doctors for the worst that is yet to come

Toronto West End hospitals are at risk of running out of personal protective equipment (PPE), and we’re just at the beginning of our COVID-19 fight.  Local physicians and their families have pulled together this website for you to donate any extra PPE you have.

How likely is it that you’re a resident sitting on a stockpile of surgical masks? It would be awesome if you were a hardcore doomsday secret bunker person and you saw this and realized that your stash could have a huge impact.  Amazing, but unlikely. However, if you’re a certain small business owner who normally carries this inventory, now we’re talking…

But wait, we’re asking these business owners to donate their supplies (dentist offices, vets, beauty salons, tattoo parlours, private clinics, etc.) when many of these companies are the very same shops likely struggling to stay afloat.  Do they just hand over the valuable inventory they need to get back up and running when the dust settles?

If you’re a business owner with PPE stock you haven’t donated because you’re concerned for the financial wellbeing of your company, a company you’ve worked hard to build and that provides financial support for you and your family, we get it. What if Troop could purchase this inventory from you at a reasonable cost?

If this message resonates drop us an email (, we’ll figure out how to buy your PPE.  If you know a business owner in one of these sectors, please pass this note along.

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help

Is COVID-19 Actually A Good Thing?

COVID-19? A good thing? No. Hell no. But damn there is a seriously bright silver lining here and I hope I’m not the only one squinting. Devastation caused by the coronavirus has reached all corners of the world, but so has a level of compassion that we haven’t seen in decades, if ever.

Laughter is The Best Form of Therapy

During these trying times, we offer some light-hearted relief by sharing some of the most comical memes, videos and tweets that have popped up over the past few weeks. In the words of Mark Twain, “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” Enjoy.
