As the world takes isolation and distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Greater Victoria residents are finding their own ways to support and encourage their communities.
Here are some signs, stands and more that Victorians are using to keep spirits high.
|Angela Smith-Rolfe snapped a picture of a woman and her stand on Third Street. The sign reads, ‘Take Only What You Need, We’re all in this together.’ “I don’t know the name of this young lady…but I was brought to tears by the compassion and kindness of this table of supplies she had put outside her apartment,” Smith-Rolfe said. “May it bring out the kindness in us all? How true that we are all in this together.” (Courtesy of Angela Smith-Rolfe)|
