Canada Day seniors’ care packages

    UCC-APC prepared seniors care packages to assist the community in rural Alberta.

    These kits provide hygiene and mental health support items. They hope to lift spirits and support those more isolated and at greater risk during these uncertain times.

    UCC-APC delivered 140 Canada Day COVID care packages to seniors in Alberta’s rural communities. Volunteers delivered to independent care lodges in the towns of Andrew, Chipman, Bruderheim, Lamont, and Mundare, with the aim to spread some joy and provide comfort during the ongoing pandemic.

    While visiting rural communities, they also had the opportunity to speak with the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate. They are a Ukrainian Catholic order founded in Western Ukraine, and have supported the Ukrainian immigrant community considerably over the past decades. UCC-APC members brought packages to the sisters as well, to show support.

    “UCC-APC would like to thank Jackie Armstrong-Homeniuk, MLA for Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville, for helping to deliver the packages and create contacts in these rural Albertan communities. We would also like to thank our interns Daria Podilsky and Kyria Bacinski for their hard work in putting these packages together!”
