The focus of our year long 75th Anniversary celebration is completing 75 Acts of Kindness in our communities. Some of the acts will be through our community sponsorship program, providing staff volunteers, free tent usage and through encouraging our staff and members to complete everyday tasks to add to our list like shovelling a neighbours driveway or buying a coffee for someone in line.

If you would like to be a part of our 75 Acts of Kindness, visit one of our 6 locations to select a card with an Act of Kindness on it and send us pictures to Join us at our AGM in the spring (date to be announced soon!) to help us celebrate turning 75 and to check in on some of our Acts of Kindness so far. On July 10th, 2020 we will wrap up the year of celebrations and showcase our Acts of Kindness completed throughout the year!
