KINDNESS PROJECT

Be a Santa to a Senior - 13th Annual 2024

“The Kindness Project” recognizes Older Adults ALL YEAR LONG

Sponsored by West Parry Sound District Community Support Services (CSS).

About

Being a Santa to an older person is more critical than ever. Due to rising costs, income that does not keep up and continued isolation and loneliness, many face hardship all year. Older people need you to focus on their wellness and happiness more than ever.  

Through the Kindness Project, you can help by:

  • Give the gift of your time.  Agree to spend an hour or two a month visiting with a CSS senior.  Play a game, walk or chat and enjoy a coffee together.

  • Make a financial donation online by sending an e-transfer to finance@csswest.ca. When doing the e-transfer, please use the message box to inform us that this is a donation and to which address we can send a charitable receipt.

  • Mail or drop off cash, cheque or gift cards to our office at your convenience Monday to Friday

  • Call our office if you need more details at 705-746-5602

 

                                                        

                                     

 

How will it benefit older adults in the community?
