'CareMongering:' How Hamilton residents are fighting COVID-19 with kindness

When Jim Savage walks toward a home with a bag full of groceries in each hand, it's usually his own — but this weekend, the 60-year-old has been showing up in front of houses with a shopping cart full of supplies for strangers who can't zip around Hamilton to buy groceries as more COVID-19 cases pop up around the city.

He is one of the thousands of locals who have joined an online group to help deliver items to those who can't afford them or can't get around the city easily.

"Right now, I'm just doing grocery runs," he told CBC News. "People are immunosupressed, they're afraid to go out and they need people to do their shopping."
