Thanksgiving was the perfect time to extend a warm thank you to all the amazing volunteers who have worked tirelessly to keep seniors connected and engaged before we closed down, while we were closed down and now that we are open again.

We usually do a Volunteer Appreciation day in April but had to forgo that this year so we chose Friday, October 9 as a day of celebrating. We asked our volunteers to attend our Thanksgiving Drive Through where we decorated with fall colours and presented them with a gift bag of fall-themed items to keep them warm and cozy.

Over 80 volunteers attended the event and we even did a few deliveries to people who were not able to get to the centre.  Staff were out front to greet them and chat.  It was wonderful to see some of the people who have not been at the centre since March as well as the other regular faces who have been here helping since we reopened.

A special thank you to MP Kelly McCauley’s office for donating the water bottles that we added to the gift bags.  As always, we could not accomplish what we have without the work of our volunteers.  Your excellence drives our success!
