Adopt a Grandparent
Adopt-a-Grandparent for 2020
The Town of Peace River Adopt-a-Grandparent program is returning to help seniors who may be feeling isolated during the holiday season. Holiday gift bags will be delivered to seniors in Peace River, including those who reside at Heritage Towers, Points West Living and Sutherland Nursing Home.
If you would like to bring cheer to a senior this year you can pick up a gift bag at the Baytex Energy Centre and fill it with unisex gifts. A suggested value for gifts is between $25.00 – $50.00. Filled bags can be returned to the Baytex Energy Centre and FCSS staff and volunteers will deliver your gifts in time for the Holidays.
Seniors living in care facilities will be referred by the facilities, and seniors living independently can be referred to this program by either family, friends, or support agencies by calling
(780) 624-1000 ext. 1030. Confidentiality is assured for all participants.
Gift bags will be available for pick-up beginning Monday, November 16, 2020, at the Baytex Energy Centre, 9810-73 Ave.
Filled bags must be dropped off by Monday, December 14, 2020, to ensure they can be delivered. Due to allergy and diet restrictions, no food items are allowed.
