GO FUND ME FUNDRAISING EVENT

THE S.C.O.N.A. SENIORS CENTER NEEDS YOUR HELP!

EVERYONE HAS A GRANDPARENT OR PERHAPS AN AGING PARENT! MANY OF THEM ARE STRUGGLING TO REMAIN CONNECTED TO THEIR PEERS AND THE COMMUNITY. WE HAVE BEEN HELPING OLDER, FRAIL SENIORS TO FIND THAT CONNECTION FOR MORE THAN FOURTY YEARS!

IN THIS LITTLE HOUSE SCONA MEETS THE NEEDS OF SOME OF THE MOST VULNERABLE AND LONELY CITIZENS OF EDMONTON. WE STRUGGLE TO TELL THE STORY OF OUR SENIORS IN A WAY THAT WILL BE HEARD AND UNDERSTOOD BY THOSE WITH THE MONEY: GOVERNMENT AND PHILANTHROPIC ORGANIZATIONS. WE ARE THREATENED WITH CLOSURE AFTER FORTY-TWO YEARS OF SERVICE! IT IS SIMPLY WRONG THAT THOSE WHO MADE OUR PROVINCE GREAT WILL BE DENIED A PLACE THAT HAS HELPED THEM TO THRIVE; A PLACE THEY HAVE EMBRACED AS THEIR OWN! HELP US TO HELP THEM STAY CONNECTED AND FILL THEIR LIVES WITH PURPOSE AND FUN AGAIN! PLEASE, GIVE GENEROUSLY!!
