From Me to You - Engage NS Campaign

Send a note to someone in your community this winter!

From Me to You Program - Engage Nova Scotia

Join us in writing or drawing a note to someone in your community - a person you know or haven't met yet.

The pandemic has prevented us from being together as much as we'd like and the winter months ahead may present added challenges - yet we know how good social connections are for our wellbeing.

Just as we can’t know what the year ahead will look like, we never know what anyone is facing in their lives at the moment our paths cross. And we can never know the impacts that small gestures of thoughtfulness can have on any given day.

CARDS CAN BE PICKED UP AT THE FOLLOWING LOCATIONS:
- Trenton Town Hall (120 Main Street)
- Trenton Library (1 Forge Street, side entrance of Town Hall)
- Trenton Minor Sports Community Centre (75 Park Road)

Summer Street Program: Prepared Meals

Participants in Summer Street's Food Services Vocational Program have been busy learning new skills while preparing a variety of healthy meals for community members.

Quality, nutritious food is fundamental to overall health and well-being and, even at the best of times, can be challenging for seniors and vulnerable adults for many reasons. Summer Street's Prepared Meals Program has a variety of frozen meals available at NO COST for adults who are socially isolated, have difficulty getting to a grocery store due to health or transportation challenges, have mobility issues, financial concerns, or are experiencing other barriers and difficulties.

If you, or someone you know, could benefit from this program please contact or call (902)755-2810.

Summer Street's prepared meal program is made possible through the generous support of the Government of Nova Scotia, EfficiencyOne, and Nova Scotia Power.
