Dear Storefront Family,
The East Scarborough Storefront is a vibrant community made of diverse populations including many who may be particularly vulnerable to COVID-19. The health and safety of our community is our priority.
To ensure the continued health and safety of our community, The Storefront has decided to temporarily close. This is in line with all of the Toronto and Canadian public health directives.
We are tentatively scheduled to reopen on April 6th, and will continuously re-evaluate as the situation unfolds.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
The entire building at 4040 Lawrence Avenue East is closed.
Our staff will be working remotely to keep you updated and will continue working to ensure people have access to resources and information during this difficult time. We appreciate your patience with us. We will stay in regular communication with you in the days and weeks to come. Should you require assistance, please call our main line at (416) 208-9889. We will make every effort to answer your call in person, however if you get our voicemail, please leave a message. We will check for messages regularly and get back to you as soon as possible.
You can find The Storefront’s latest updates and announcements at our website: https://thestorefront.org/covid-19-updates/ and on our social media channels – Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. The KGO Updates community newsletter will also be sharing neighbourhood updates and announcements (subscribe to KGO Updates here). For more information on COVID-19, please visit Toronto Public Health or Health Canada.
We will continue to monitor this situation and will communicate with and follow guidelines as they are disseminated from health authorities. We will maintain our commitment and diligent efforts to mitigate exposure to and transmission of communicable illnesses within The Storefront community and ask that each of you please do your part in continuing to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.
The Team at East Scarborough Storefront
