Orillia launches #OrillaCares; looking for acts of exceptional kindness

Encouraging people to post positive and uplifting stories to social media

The City of Orillia has kicked-off a campaign it calls Orillia Cares.

It’s an online effort encouraging people to post positive and uplifting stories to social media about acts of kindness during the COVID-19 pandemic using the hashtag #OrilliaCares.

This campaign provides an opportunity to share positive stories and socially connect in a time when we must physically distance.

“We have heard wonderful stories in the community where businesses, groups and individuals have gone above and beyond to help someone during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s important during these challenging times to share the good news stories as well. Let’s shine a light on the positive stories that demonstrate just how resilient the human spirit is and why Orillia is known to be such a caring, philanthropic community,” said Mayor Steve Clarke.
