CW Youth Council launches #CWCares movement

Posted On Monday May 11, 2020

CENTRE WELLINGTON – We know, during these unprecedented times, it's important to remember that supporting one another in our community is vital to our well-being.

In Canada, an inspiring movement has emerged in response to COVID-19, this is known as the caremonger movement.

This movement describes the practice of offering help or care to those that need it most. And it isn’t just limited to delivering supplies or food; care mongering can mean running errands, or setting up online exercise classes, or cooking and doing chores for others.

Our movement began with our CW Youth Council.  A member, Madison Hill was tasked by her teacher to write a report on how she has embraced caremongering during the pandemic. Numerous inspirational and motivating stories were shared by our own local youth, that the CW Youth Council decided to host a platform that would show how our community, especially our youth are embracing the caremononger movement in Centre Wellington.

“Working together, our council has decided to share stories and testimonials about youth who are working hard and showing acts of caremongering in our community during this difficult and uncertain time” said Madison Hill, CW Youth Council member. “I hope our community will take the time to read these stories and recognize the kind and compassionate youth that Centre Wellington has."

“Our CW Youth Council have worked hard to stay connected during these extraordinary times” stated Mayor Kelly Linton.  “Many of the initiatives they planned on doing, have had to be cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19.  I am very proud of this council, for taking the initiative to highlight how our youth and our community are coming together by launching #CWCares.  Take a moment to read their inspiring stories, and share your own.  We know our community is full of kind and selfless people, we will get through this together.”

Communities are coming together to support one another. Whether they are showing gratitude for our essential workers, or thanking their friends and family for kind gestures.  Visit www.connectcw.ca now to share your story on #CWCares.  Youth are encouraged to follow our CW Youth Council Instagram account, and share their stories on our platform at instagram.com/cwyouthcouncil_ as well as on Connect CW.
