Warm up the holidays for a lonely senior in your community

Feeling alone. It’s a hardship many seniors across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley experience daily.

Perhaps you know someone—a parent, a grandparent or a friend, who is experiencing this.

It becomes especially painful during the holidays for seniors like Sally who don’t have any family close by.

That’s why United Way’s Active Aging* programs are so vital. These programs combine physical and social activities to help vulnerable seniors improve their quality of life.

Sally has new friends and a new start in life now, thanks to donors like you!

Will you warm up your heart and help another senior like Sally?

As more seniors across the province are aging, more seniors will need support. Make a donation today and help another senior access an Active Aging* program.

Please give before December 31, so we can bring joy to these seniors sooner. We’ll also be so much closer to our goal of helping over 66,000 seniors next year.
