Socks for Seniors/Warmer Winter
(Bradford, Innisfil, ON) ‘Tis the season to care for others in our communities and we want to team up with you to make a difference.
At both our North and South Divisions, you will find a couple of ways to help make this a Merry Christmas for seniors and the less fortunate.
Warmer Winter is an initiative you are probably familiar with as we have participated for 3 years. We are accepting donations of winter jackets, hats, gloves/mittens and boots for adults and children. Donations are accepted 24/7 in our North Division as the bin is located in the front foyer of the station which is accessible at all times. We are accepting donations during regular business hours at our South Division in Bradford.
Donations will be delivered to the Innisfil Community Church on Innisfil Beach Rd. where they will sort and provide to community families in need. In Bradford, we partner with Coats for Kids who distribute the donations.
A new initiative for us this year is Socks for Seniors. Please help make a senior smile on Christmas morning by making a donation of new socks. Several hundred pairs of new socks are needed to ensure each resident at Bradford Valley Care Community in Bradford receives a cozy gift on Christmas morning.
The donation box for Socks for Seniors is located in our South Division lobby.
Please join us in helping others during what can be a challenging time of year for some of our vulnerable residents.
