We love YVR.

As this pandemic spreads fear, anxiety, and isolation across Vancouver, there's an opportunity for us to step up as a city.                                      

Despite being separated (safely by two meters),

how do we connect during COVID-19? 

 

As regular people wanting to help regular people where we can, we see a space for Vancouver to come together to help, encourage, and make it clear that no one in our city area is alone.

ABOUT US

The Connect During Covid project is launched by some regular people who want to love our city.  We hope you can be helped and help others.  Some of us are connected with a community of faith called CityLights Church.

We think that helping each other matters and this is an opportunity to come together breaking past the normal barriers that separate us during normal times.  We don’t have to have the same beliefs in order to love our city.  A few of us who started this project follow Jesus.  Jesus is a great example of love, selflessness, and peace.  He was non-anxious. He was brave.  He helped.   We think Jesus can help and inspire us in our crisis.  He can help us declutter our souls and grow peace.
