SANTA FOR SENIORS A HUGE SUCCESS!
|This year, with the help of the general public, the Seniors Services Society was able to provide gifts to 148 low-income, homeless, or isolated seniors from communities all across metro Vancouver, reaching out as far as Chilliwack. Your generosity generated over $5,500.00 in Christmas items to give our clients in need of some Christmas spirit. Thank you everyone, for making our 2019 Santa for Seniors campaign a success!|
We were also lucky enough to have three participating retirement homes in the community donate a combined $3,750+ in gifts and monetary assistance- Seniors helping Seniors! Furthermore, over 30 volunteers answered the call to pick up gifts from our participating stores and ensure they reached the recipients over the holidays. Thank you all!
We would also like to extend our gratitude to those companies in our community who stepped up to help out. Rokstad Power, Landcor Data Corporation, and Benchmark Building Systems all gave generously to Santa for Seniors, and we can’t thank them enough! We also greatly appreciate London Drugs on Sixth, Your Dollar Store With More on Carnarvon, and Save-on Foods in Sapperton for giving up floor space to accommodate one of our Santa for Seniors trees!
We also received an abundance of cash, gift cards, and perishable food items from donors, which helped to ensure our clients who were most in need did not go without this holiday season.
Many clients expressed this was the only gift they received this year, and were left speechless by the generosity of their donors.
To all our Santa for Seniors supporters and participants: Thank You!
From Santa for Seniors gift recipients:
“Thank you so much for Christmas gift to me. It filled my heart with happiness and gratitude.”
“No one has ever bought me slippers before. I am so happy to receive this gift.”
