Donate to Help a Senior!
Help sponsor a senior! Every year, we provide up to $175 to up to 100 older adults 55+ for winter necessities. Seniors must be a resident of Greater Sudbury. They attend a shopping event at Giant Tiger Lasalle in November and chose clothing, shoes, slippers, winter coats, boots, mitts or hats that they need.
You can donate by sending us your donation via mail or e-transfer. All donations over $10 are eligible for a tax receipt.
We are holding a fundraising event on September 1 to September to 4 at Giant Tiger at Lasalle. You can round up your purchase at the cash to help support seniors in need. Or donate here:

Keeping Seniors Warm is a volunteer led partnership of the City of Greater Sudbury, the Seniors Advisory Panel, Giant Tiger, the St. Joseph's Foundation of Sudbury, and the Ward 8 and Donovan/Elm West Community Action Networks.
We provide up to $175 to up to 100 older adults 55+ living in the City of Greater Sudbury who are in need of winter necessities. Seniors attend a shopping event at Giant Tiger Lasalle and chose winter clothing, shoes, slippers, winter coats, boots, mitts or hats that they need.
Many other community groups and businesses also support this initiative through volunteering at the event, helping to fundraise, and helping to support our activities.
We do not accept donations of used clothing.
