Adopt a Grandparent
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 Town of Peace River and fill it with unisex gifts. A suggested value for gifts is between $25.00 – $50.00. Filled bags can be returned to the Town of Peace River 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 14, 2022 at the Town of Peace River – Community Services office – 10008 100 Ave – Monday – Friday 10.00am – 12.00 and 2.00 – 4.00pm.
The deadline to drop off filled bags is Thursday, December 15th, 2022 at the Town Office to ensure they can be delivered. Due to allergy and diet restrictions no food items are allowed.
