Community Affections: Write a letter to uplift an older adult!

63-5019 46 Ave SW, Calgary, AB, T3E 6R1 [map]
1-2 hours / weekly
2 month
We are looking for volunteers who are interested in sending cards and artwork to us so that we can share it with older adults in nursing homes!

These are unprecedented times. Many older adults in the community and those who live in facilities are more isolated than ever before. In an effort to promote social distancing, facilities, residences and nursing homes are shutting their doors to the outside world. 
​
Now more than ever, older adults need our love and support! 

We’re collecting cards and artwork to send to older adults in facilities. Currently, we’re sending letters to Bethany Seniors Home and Carewest nursing homes in Calgary.
