For seniors in our community who live alone, are financially challenged and don’t have any relatives nearby, the holidays can be a difficult time. With the added hardship of social isolation, we feel that it is especially important for us to let seniors know they are cared for and not alone this Christmas.
This is how it works:
- Phone NexusBC at 250.545.0585 to arrange to pick up a box at our office: 102-3201 30th Street, Vernon
- Fill it with items that a senior would like, along with a grocery gift card (suggested amount: $20-50)
- Enclose a card with a personal message
- Drop the box off at NexusBC before December 15th, 2021
We've prepared a list of items that a senior might find helpful: Gift Ideas For Seniors (pdf)

If you would like to help but don't have the time to put together a Christmas Care Box, we ask that you please consider a financial contribution and to spread the word about this campaign.
