Campbell River Lunch Programs
One of the programs we help fund provides nutritional, hot lunches and an exercise program to older adults in Campbell River who face multiple health and financial challenges as well as social isolation. Lunch is provided for anyone who walks in the door Monday to Friday and cannot afford to buy lunch. Sometimes this lunch is the only meal some of these people will eat that day. A donation of $80 would pay for lunch for 10 people. Many of the seniors that come for lunch also get to socialize with others and there is usually a nurse on staff.
Seniors gather for lunch in Campbell River.
We just can't say it enough! Thank YOU - our Individual Donors, Corporate Donors, Employee Giving Campaigns, Sponsors and Volunteers - your support means improving thousands of local lives and funding 64 programs in 2016!
Watch for our next newsletter in May when we announce our 2016 programs!
