Senior Picnic Basket Program

Every Spring, the Alexandra Centre Society puts together care packages & picnic baskets to support our local senior citizens. 

 

Our Seniors' Picnic Basket Program aims to provide nourishment to stay healthy, activity items to stay active, and to show care to the elders in our community.  Being a small local charity, we are able to work with other local organizations to identify seniors in need; collect donation items for hampers; purchase local products; and assemble and distribute care packages in a personal way that lets recipients know that our collective community cares for their well-being.
