BOTTLE DRIVE FUNDRAISER – WEDELIVER HAPPINESS 3.0

  • 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

   

DONATE YOUR BOTTLES TO OUR CENTRE AND HELP US DELIVERY HAPPINESS AND BRING OUR COMMUNITY INTO THE LIVES OF 100 LOWER INCOME SENIORS!

We know that we have the best seniors centre in Edmonton.  From our fitness classes to our events here at the centre, we have a wonderful community of WSAC members, volunteers and staff.  Unfortunately, there are many seniors here in Edmonton that are unable to come to our centre.

All proceeds from our bottle drive will be used to brighten the day of 100 seniors.  Each senior will receive

  • An entree, soup and baked goods from our Frozen Meal Program, and
  • A “brain game” – a book, crossword book and/or puzzle
  • A cute stuffed animal, courtesy of our friends at ICAN!
  • Each senior will also receive their gifts in a lovely gift bag.  We will be including a handwritten note wishing them well and letting them know that there are people in the community that care about their wellbeing!

VOLUNTEER FAIR – GIVING BACK NEVER GROWS OLD

Volunteers are the heart of Westend Seniors Activity Centre. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the dedication and generosity of volunteers to operate our programs, activities, and seniors support services. When we collaborate and work collectively, amazing things can happen.

Whether you’re a senior yourself or are simply interested in giving back, volunteering is a fun way to meet new people and make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.  There are many other benefits. You’ll learn new things, gain confidence, and build self-esteem. Volunteering has also proven to be good for your health.

  • 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • WSAC parking lot
