Rez Mailbox Totes

May 4th, 2020

Ashcroft First Nation is implementing the use of clear easy clean “tote boxes” to deliver food (hampers/food drops) to community members living on-reserve. A tote is provided to each household, filled with food and dropped outside each home for homeowner to retrieve. This ensures the necessary physical distancing of the staff and the homeowners.

These totes can also be picked up if they are left in a visible location and brought back to the household. Smaller boxes are provided for mail, newsletters, and other important notices. This practice demonstrates the importance of physical/social distancing and communicates that we must do this in order to keep everyone well in the community. The target audience includes: Elders, persons with chronic/disabilities, low-income families, singles (social assistance clients), and persons with no vehicle or driver’s license.

This practice shows community members that we care! It ensures our community members are still getting a service provided to them under the challenging circumstances through a physical/social distancing model.
