To comply with recently announced government guidelines, Kerby Centre will close to the public effective immediately.
The free bread market for seniors will be held on Tuesdays and Fridays, Dec 1-22, from 10:30-12:30 in the Centre’s gymnasium.
The Centre will continue to be a hub for the numerous support and outreach programs for seniors that the agency is operating. Among these are Information Resources, Thrive grocery delivery program, Kerby Centre’s shelter for older adults fleeing elder abuse, and the food rescue program.
“The heart of Kerby Centre is in our building, but most of our work to support seniors this year has been outside these walls,” said Kerby Centre CEO Larry Mathieson. “As we enter the winter months, we are committed to reaching out to seniors in our community and helping them through this challenging time.”
Outreach programs will continue to address the vital issues of food security and social isolation for Calgary’s seniors.
“New initiatives Kerby Centre launched this year are growing quickly,” said Mathieson. “Online presentations and classes are reaching more seniors in their homes, and our food rescue program is getting quality food to their tables.”
Updates will be posted on the Centre’s website and social media channels.
Kerby Centre has launched a campaign to raise funds to help lift the spirits of seniors during the holiday season. Donations can be made at www.kerbycentre.com/practicallychristmas
