#VONCompassion Campaign

Across Ontario and Nova Scotia, VON employees are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response. The efforts of VON caregivers are helping keep people fed, cared for and safe in their homes. These efforts are essential, and in many cases help reduce further strain on our fellow medical professionals in hospitals. These people are all heroes in this global effort.

To them, we are so grateful, and we know our communities are too. Consider showing some love and appreciation to members of our VON Family who are on the front line every day through our VON Week 2021 campaign, Compassion Where it Counts.
