Going, Going, GONE!
We're excited to announce the first Senior Wish Online Fundraising Auction. In collaboration with A Touch of Class Auctions we will be holding an online auction between June 2nd - June 9th, 2021.
We are reaching out to you today looking for your support in helping us with items for our auction. Items such as restaurant gift certificates, gift cards and certificates for local products and services would be greatly appreciated, home décor, antiques, collectibles, etc.
All monies raised will go directly back into Simcoe County ensuring seniors will be served
by our efforts.
You will receive recognition within the auction listing and in our social media for your generous contribution.
Without the support and generosity of a caring and thoughtful community, we would be unable to continue to improve the quality of life for so many worthy seniors.
More details will be available very soon. In the interim, if you'd like to volunteer to help us with the event or have an item you'd like to donate, please email us at email@example.com .
2020 Christmas Wish Update
Senior Wish is planning to meet the challenges of providing gifts and reaching out to our seniors.
Following discussions with caregivers and seniors we realize that the Senior Wish Association is challenged this year to provide gifts for the lonely and isolated seniors in our community.
It has been our tradition to provide items on a seniors Christmas Wish list but this is not possible this year due to restrictions and lack of space at seniors’ residences, plus the challenges of COVID 19, etc. One of our challenges is that we cannot have drop boxes for gift items throughout the community this year. We are planning to make sure that we will touch the lives of lonely seniors this Christmas and we need you to help us make a difference.
Reaching out to seniors in our community is our first step, providing personally hand-crafted Christmas Cards with messages inside to the seniors to reassure them that they are not being forgotten and that we care about them, sending our love and support.
We are looking for volunteers to help us craft professional cards and messages and will need over 1800 cards.
We have also received many requests to provide a shopping service and/or deliver items to seniors’ homes. If you could help us with this we would like to hear from you – It could be as simple as a senior wanting something from a local store that carries their favourite treat.
Our next steps will be determined by restrictions and how we respond to the opportunities to reach our seniors.
We are also accepting financial donations that will assist us in providing floral arrangements, hand lotion, and other treats for our recipients, plus the hard working teams at our local seniors homes and centres.
You may never meet the senior that has received your kindness but you can be sure they will never forget how you made them feel!
Last year over 4,000 seniors in the Barrie area benefitted from Senior Wish.
