COVID-19 Outreach - Kintore’s International Campaign
Make This World A Better Place
Kintore College sees itself as a springboard for personal growth and professional success. During this COVID-19 pandemic, we have been challenged to grow in unique ways.
Inspired by the Founder of Opus Dei, St. Josemaria who wrote in The Way, “Don’t let your life be sterile. Be useful. Blaze a trail. Shine forth with the light of your faith and of your love … light up all the ways of the earth with the fire of Christ that you carry in your heart.”
Since March 31, 2020, Kintore College has been actively reaching out to give back to the community. We have sent over 1,500 cards to Make This World A Better Place. We have also started distributing food to help those in need.
Sending Words Of Encouragement
To Our Community
Working together with current Kintore residents, alumni, family and friends, we have been sending cards and videos of encouragement to people living in long-term care facilities in downtown Toronto, women living in a shelter in Montreal, cancer patients in Vancouver and Toronto, patrons of a meal preparation group in Toronto, and seniors in Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.
Accompanying The Sick, Elderly and Lonely
We have been calling people who live alone or are sick to listen to them and offer them companionship, words of encouragement and other support.
Sharing Food With Those In Need
A special thank you to Dorothy, Clarissa and Emmanuella for your generous food donations which
St. Basil's Miller Group has received.
Thanking Frontline Workers For Their Courage
We continue to send our handwritten cards to encourage frontline workers in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, the United States, the U.K., and the Philippines.
Join Us In Making This World A Better Place!
Kintore family works with alumni, family and friends all over the world to help fund our project as well as to create cards of encouragement, and send them to as many people as we can. Thanks also to Abby, Ana Cecilia, Stephanie, Bria, Julie, Yvonne, Marta, Clarissa, Savina, Chi, Sevilay, Christina, Fagun, Rachel, Catherine, Jystina, Melanie, Jelissa, and Grace.

Special Thanks to Michelin Lagman and her team at Kintore College. The Rekai Centre and Kintore College work together to send love and support to our residents and staff. Kintore College's campaign to make this world a better place includes Kintore residents, alumna and friends working together to send Thank You posters to Rekai Centre staff. In addition, they have been sending handwritten cards to The Rekai Centre residents since March and will continue to do so until we have overcome this pandemic.
