Willowdale Covid Response Network-4.png


Please leave a message and someone will return your call within 48 hours.

Please note that this initiative is entirely volunteer-run and we are limited in what we can offer, so we may not be able to meet all requests. We will do our best with our capacity.  




The Willowdale Covid Response Network was formed as our city, province and country began to take serious measures to limit the spread of Covid-19. We are a group of neighbours who are here to serve by providing:

  • Grocery, essentials and medication drop offs

  • Connecting our community to volunteer opportunities

  • Advocating for needs in our community


We Love Willowdale is a movement that began in the aftermath of the Yonge Street Tragedy.  It is a movement that continues as we seek to serve our neighbours.

As of September 2020, We Love Willowdale is now a part of Neighbourlink North York. Many years ago, Neighbourlink NY also ran a thriving network of neighbours helping neighbours.  It is our hope that coming under a recognized local charity - we can expand and build sustainable infrastructure to allow us to better serve the community. 


There is some measure of risk when helping others during this pandemic. As such, we would like to minimize human interaction. This means things can be ordered online for delivery OR dropped off at the door. We encourage lots of hand washing for those volunteering to help and for recipients to disinfect whatever they receive at the door. 

Those choosing to give or receive help are choosing to take on this risk. 

The Willowdale COVID Response Network is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and Toronto Foundation.
