Elves for Elders
Help share the magic of the holiday season with our patients and residents.
Holidays are a time of joy and celebration for many, but there are others in our community who feel alone, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic. The
health care programs and services offered by Bruyère serve older adults, many who are alone, isolated and often forgotten at this time of year. With social isolation, depression, anxiety and loneliness being even more apparent given the pandemic restrictions the Elves for Elders program is hoping to bring some holiday magic to our campuses and builds on Bruyère’s commitment to making each life better.
Bruyère invites the community to join the “Elves for Elders” campaign through online donations this year. In an effort to support our local retail community, we are committed to supporting local businesses and will be using donations to purchase gifts for our patients and residents including toiletries, winter clothing, games, writing and art supplies.
Help make a difference this festive season by donating here
This year’s goal is to provide gifts to over 400 seniors.
Each gift package will include:
- A handmade Christmas card from local children
- A games and fun item such as a puzzle book, or adult colouring book with pencil crayons
- Personal care items such as lotions, deodorant, or hair brush
- A warm winter item like a shawl, wheelchair lap blanket, or slippers
The deadline to donate is Monday, December 14th at 5 p.m.
