Donate to help fund a senior in need

 

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. Donate here:

$7,460.00 of $17,500 goal donated in 2022

How to Apply

 

The City of Greater Sudbury handles all applications for this program. Applications for our November 2 shopping event opens on October 3. Applicants must be referred by a referral agency, who will fill out the application form and email it to the City. Participants will be received on a first come first served basis, having new individuals to the program accommodated first.

ABOUT US

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.

If you're interested in joining our group, or in volunteering at our events, please contact us!
