Cheer Packages

To show love and support for seniors during this difficult time, we’ve started the Cheer Package program. Cheer Packages are filled with small gift items, activity books, snacks and cards. The goal of the program is to bring smiles to the faces of seniors, and remind them that they are loved and cared about.

 To create Cheer Packages for as many isolated seniors as possible, we need your help! Your donation will go directly to the Cheer Package program, helping us purchase Cheer Package contents such as large print crosswords, playing cards, colouring books and markers, wall stickers, snacks, chocolate bars and a mix of other fun gifts and essential items.

As a volunteer, you can collect donations, pack Cheer Packages at home, and drop them off (contact-free) at retirement or long-term care homes local to you. This is a great service project for students or families! Email us to get started.

About our

Cheer Packages

COVID-19 has been devastating to our senior population- especially those in nursing homes. Our seniors have endured months of isolation from their loved ones. Although we can’t be there in-person to extend a hand in comfort or offer a much-needed hug, Cheer Packages are a way to connect with seniors, and show them that they are loved and cared about.

Thank you to Taking IT Global, the Government of Canada, and Canada Service Corps for providing funding for our initial round of 200 Cheer Packages!
