City introduces #AbbyCares online resource to keep residents connected

Social media content includes kids’ activities, ideas to keep busy and more

The City of Abbotsford has launched a new online resource to keep residents connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.

#AbbyCares is a selection of online resources to support the community, businesses, families, youth, seniors and children.

All the #AbbyCares resources are posted at letstalkabbotsford.ca/abbycares, and new content is added each week.

Residents can download children’s activities, get new ideas to keep children engaged, join in the 7 p.m. salute to health-care workers, and find out what other residents and organizations are doing to support each other during this trying time.

The #AbbyCares content is also shared across the city’s social media platforms.

Information on City of Abbotsford services during COVID-19 can be found at abbotsford.ca/covid19updates
