In the fall of 2020 the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) interviewed Carrie Wakeford, Executive Director of Literacy Ontario Central South (LOCS) and Stacey McQuoid a LOCS Board Member and Program Coordinator at the Trenton office of Community Learning Alternatives (CLA), to learn how LBS organizations in the region came together to support each other during the pandemic.
We continue to offer support for learners and volunteers and we continue to connect with our community partners. We support and learn from each other as we move programs online. We meet often to share creative ideas for addressing challenges created by COVID-19. We try to ask “What can we do” rather than focusing on what we can’t do!

LOCS would also like to thank Stacey for creating a video introducing the LOCS region and outlining the LBS supports and services in place during the pandemic.
