Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre
Hydration Is Key
If you take a drink from a bottle and it keeps pouring back, it must be spring water. (Har har har ?) Bad jokes and eye rolls aside, water consumption is essential to our health, and it significantly affects energy levels and brain function, on top of a whole laundry list of other key benefits.
For our homeless neighbours living on the streets or in shelters, who test positive for Covid-19 or are awaiting test results, the government has opened up ‘isolation hotels’ to help minimize outbreaks in highly vulnerable communities. One such isolation hotel has been set up on Roncy and is run by the Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre. So far, they’ve been doing a remarkable job of keeping the homeless men hydrated this summer. That said, they don’t have a proper water filtration system, so they’ve been going through bottles of water like it’s going out of style! On top of keeping up with the demand, storage has been a challenge, and they recognize it isn’t the greenest method of going about things.
How you can help
We’re pooling funds to help purchase a water filtration system and one replacement filter to be used with their existing water dispensing system. One filter is equivalent to 42 big jugs of clean water. Let’s take some of the strain off the Hotel staff so they can continue to hydrate our pals next door in a more eco-friendly manner.
