Support services for seniors in Flamborough
Holiday Gift Program
This program brings gifts and joy to those who may be alone or isolated during the holiday season. We partner with the Flamborough Review, local food banks and faith groups to make sure every senior is supported. We match generous donors with a recipient to help fill their wish list. We take donations to purchase gifts and support senior programs throughout the year. If you are interested in giving to this program, call our office to connect: 906 689 7880.
