Honoured recipient of the 2016 Calgary Herald Christmas Fund
Silvera for Seniors was selected as one of the 12 recipients in the 2016 Calgary Herald Christmas Fund. You can read the official announcement here.
The Calgary Herald Christmas Fund was created in 1991 by Herald employees who wanted to give back to the community. Since then, it has raised nearly $24 million dollars for critical needs such as homelessness, hunger, addiction, and challenges facing vulnerable children and seniors.
Silvera is honoured to be selected. It will help raise awareness of seniors’ issues, boost the profile of Silvera and the solutions we provide, and highlight the important work our employees do.
Funds we receive will go directly towards enhancing the services we deliver to our residents.
The fund raised a total of $881,522.38.
Donating to Silvera
They were part of building the communities we live in, they were part of our story. Donating is one way to see yourself in their story. Silvera for Seniors welcomes and appreciates all donations we receive in support of lower-income seniors in need affordable housing. The holidays are a special time of year we share with family and good friends. Together, we look back at the year that was and make wishes for the one ahead. Yet, each December, Silvera for Seniors knows first-hand that many of our residents spend the season alone — no family, no friends around them. Hardly magical, the holidays become a trigger for depression and sadness for many seniors.At Silvera, we work hard to make sure this is not the case. Ours is the gift of building a caring community, each and every day of the year. As a charity, Silvera depends on donations and volunteers to make it great to be a senior in Calgary.The magic of Christmas is about caring. Please consider a donation to Silvera as part of your holiday gift-giving this year and show you care about seniors.
How seniors are part of your story
Seniors are the foundation of our community. They are your parents, grandparents, aging friends and neighbours. They were the nurses, teachers, construction workers, cooks and waitresses who built our city. They gave to us, now it’s our turn to give to them. Today, some of these seniors need our help. No one ever intends to need affordable housing, but for some it’s a reality due to circumstances beyond their control. These may include:
- low-paying jobs without pensions
- outliving their savings
- loss of a spouse
- cost of health care
- a lifelong battle with mental health or addiction
- a financial crisis later in life with no time to recover
- job loss before retirement
- little or no family support
