Brenna also brought up a great point that we might be eligible for a rent subsidy, which would be extremely helpful!

@Petra hanzlik was interested in getting a custom yard sign to put in front of the office, to distract from the big gas pipe/hydro meter

Here are some cost options!

In the Coop Office conversation we just had, here were some great ideas:

  • accepting donations: when we decide on office drop-in hours, we could invite folks to donate food, clothing, kids items, etc that we can give to the community or to other organizations

    • should outreach to maison shelby and other higher income residents of St. James Town

  • having a sign in/sign out book that doubles as contact-tracing

  • having fridge magnets for easy posting of news and wifi password

  • need a shovel for the walk-up to the door
