ABOUT US

Some of our 2020 Organizing Committee

Keeping Seniors Warm is a volunteer led initiative with the support of the Greater Sudbury Seniors Advisory Panel. It seeks to address the need for warm clothing for our winters, as well as isolation for seniors in our community. Money is raised every year to sponsor seniors for a day of shopping for warm winter clothing at Giant Tiger on Lasalle Boulevard. Pre-Covid, seniors also had the opportunity to celebrate the shopping day with a lunch prior to the trip; this has been put on hold until the pandemic is over.

Seniors who are at least 55 years of age are able to spend up to $150 dollars for items like coats, boots, mitts, hats, sweaters, and other clothing that will keep them warm during the winter.

Our organizing partners include the City of Greater Sudbury, Giant Tiger, the St. Joseph's Foundation of Sudbury, and the Ward 8 and Donovan/Elm West Community Action Networks. Many other community groups and businesses also support this initiative through volunteering at the event, helping to fundraise, and helping to support our activities.
