Blue Envelope of Hope Campaign has now raised over $46,000 – April 20, 2022

Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home Program launched the Blue Envelope Campaign in May of 2020 as an urgent appeal to the community for financial support during the Covid-19 health crisis when all of our fundraising events were cancelled and most of our fee-based programs plummeted. Thanks to the wonderful community support, we were able to continue our mission despite these challenges and offered enhanced support services during the pandemic such as virtual programming, regular wellness checks for seniors and expanded our grocery delivery program to get our seniors through the first lockdown.

Fast-forward to June 2021 and as the majority of our fundraising opportunities were still on hold, you received our Blue Envelopes of Hope in your mailbox as this year’s appeal for financial support to continue our services. We are grateful that YOU responded to our call for financial support and have kept our programs and services going. It is never too late to donate to the Blue Envelope of Hope Campaign, and your financial support is always crucial to our operations. Thank you for making a difference! Donations can be made in-person at 106 McGonigal St W, by phone 613-623- 7981, or by e-transfer to [email protected] (specify in the message section Blue Envelope donation and your contact information for charitable tax receipts).
