It’s ACORN’s 50th Anniversary and you are invited to celebrate! Join us from home for our first ever online video fundraiser! We have organized this event to support our efforts with the ACORN Support Network in the midst of the global pandemic.
With the ACORN Support Network we are:
- Making on average 400 calls every day to connect people with services and supports they may qualify for, give people up to date information on the unfolding crisis, and just to check in and see how people are doing.
- Pairing people who are high risk for developing severe complications due to COVID-19 with volunteers in their neighbourhoods to help with things like grocery delivery and other essential errands.
- Gathering input from those hit hardest by the pandemic and asking them what action they would like to see governments take.
- generating 1000’s of calls by members and volunteers that advocate for what those most affected by the crisis want, including a Rent Break, Internet for all, an extended moratorium on evictions, and a freeze on all high interest and instalment loans.
ACORN’s 50th Anniversary Fundraiser will feature musical guests and a Q&A with the Founder of ACORN and Chief Organizer of ACORN International, Wade Rathke!
Our members will be hosting ACORN’s 50th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, June 19th from 7-9pm Online via Zoom. Even if you cannot attend yourself, sponsoring the event with a donation or donating your ticket to one of our members are other ways to help!
