Collingwood Together

Collingwood is a caring and connected community. We know there is strong interest amongst community members to help one another. Collingwood Together is a volunteer database that we can call upon as needs arise in the community. 

We are actively working to help coordinate and work collaboratively to respond to needs as they develop and that are identified by Community Connection 211.

Help is just a phone call away. Please call 211 if you are in need of help. The 2-1-1 Helpline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in 150 languages 

Volunteers may provide help in different ways, such as picking up or delivering items for seniors or neighbours in self-isolation, sharing information, playing a virtual game, or helping collect needed resources. 

Safety and public health are our first priority. The practice of physical distancing, proper hand hygiene, and staying home by avoiding all non-essential trips are extremely important in flattening the curve and keeping our community safe. 

Mayor Brian Saunderson adds, “Collingwood is a strong, resilient and compassionate community. We have a rich history of working together and supporting each other in times of crisis. I know that in the face of this pandemic, our community will rise to the challenge, come together, and support each other with acts of generosity and kindness, big and small, to ensure that all our residents are safe. It is in our collective DNA and it is what defines us.”    

Please add your name to the Collingwood Together volunteer database

We appreciate the support and care for our community. Please know that while you have agreed to volunteer there may not be an immediate need, but we appreciate having you as a potential resource.
