A Christmas to Remember

A Christmas to Remember

Care This Christmas

We invite you to Care this Christmas by participating in the Christmas to Remember program.

A Christmas to Remember was started by AgeCare’s Harmony Court Estate with the hope of spreading holiday cheer to lonely and/ or financially-challenged seniors. Anonymous gifts delivered directly to local seniors in need sends the message that they are being remembered this Christmas. 

The 3 ways you can show seniors that you Care this Christmas:

  1. Registering a senior who is alone and indicating the gift wish for that senior

  2. Becoming a Secret Santa for a senior by donating a gift, or

  3. Volunteering their time to sort, wrap and/or deliver the gift.

Why A Christmas to Remember is Important

The National Advisory on Aging, 2006 Seniors in Canada Interim Report Card, indicated that more seniors, especially the growing numbers of seniors over the age of 85, are living alone.  Seniors living alone are at higher risk of social isolation. This loneliness tends to be exacerbated during times traditionally dedicated to family and friends. Anonymous gifts delivered by a Christmas to Remember help to brighten recipients’ lives and send the message that they are being thought of during these special times.

A Community Lead Initiative

A Christmas to Remember is a call out to the community to Care this Christmas. It cannot happen without the support from local organizations, schools, churches, businesses and individuals. Our promise? The experience will be rewarding for everyone involved. Last year we delivered more than 200 presents to seniors in need in Lethbridge, Alberta! We know Burnaby is up for the challenge.

The Christmas to Remember program is a community lead initiative. We are not a registered charity. We happily volunteer our time and resources to ensure each registered senior receives their gift by Christmas. Gifts are not tax deductible.
