Zoom Pals

In the year of social isolation, a pair of Calgary organizations are teaming up to create as human a solution to loneliness as a pandemic will permit.

Grade school aged children go online with the help of their parents and log into Zoom to speak with seniors. The pilot program is being presented as a collaboration through the Kerby Centre and Kids Up Front Calgary.

It’s called Zoom Pals.

Named by ‘The Best Calgary’ as one of their Top 11 Best Calgary Charities to Donate Time and Money To.
