Allyson Cook is a 23. She’s a grad student at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
And since the pandemic began, she’s been volunteering for something called the Get Connected program at the Northwood long-term care facility. “This was an opportunity for volunteers to reach out to seniors … just asking if they were interested or not,” Allyson says.
