Seniors Care Packages

Each spring, the Alexandra Centre Society provides seniors' with Picnic baskets full of fresh nutritious food.  With the unusual circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic our aim was to bring a smile to the seniors in isolation during this time.  As we delivered our packages on the first week of June, we were given virtual hugs, many thanks and shared tears of joy with recipients.

 

The 2020 seniors' care program provided 45 care packages to the community.  Elders were provided with a hobby kit of their choice, freezer meals, DVDs, books, hygiene items, cloth masks, reusable bags, snacks, and resource pamphlets.

 

The Alexandra Centre Society is deeply grateful to the many organizations and volunteers for their contributions to our program:

  • Esker Foundation & Inglewood Art Supplies for their contribution to the Art Kits.
  • Plant for their contribution to the Gardening Kits.
  • Stash for their contribution to the Knitting Kits.
  • Safeway (Mission location) for their contribution to the Baking Kits.
  • Wood's Homes Youth Culinary Program for donating freezer meals and hygiene products.
  • Calgary Reads for donating books.
  • London Drugs for donating reusable bags.
  • The Inglewood Community Association for their assistance with collecting donations.
  • carya and the Inglewood Silver Threads Association for their assistance.
  • Ramsay School staff and students for creating special cards for recipients.
  • Community mebers who provided monetary and in-kind donations.
