Marg Scheben-Edey, and the task force for Out of the Cold Collingwood, would like to thank Pam Hillier for her essential work during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"Hillier has been working double-time to organize the services vulnerable people in Collingwood need the most," said Scheben-Edey.  

Hillier has overseen the switch of Collingwood Out of the Cold from a temporary, overnight shelter to a 24/7 service run out of a local hotel. 

She's also the "driving force behind the plethora of community supports 211 provides, which are more important now than ever due to the pandemic," said Scheben-Edey. "She puts her staff and the myriad of community needs ahead of her own and does so tirelessly."
