Hear from some of Operation Friendship Seniors Society’s volunteers and clients and what OFSS means to them:
Operation Friendship Seniors Society serves warm coffee in our drop-in centre seven days a week. With the support of groups like Apricity and the Cups of Care Campaign, we help seniors become part of a community. See the Cups of Care – Apricity and OFSS video below.
Operation Friendship Seniors Society is proud to partner with London Drugs and Friends to support approximately 4,000 local seniors through the Stocking Stuffers for Seniors program. Stocking Stuffers for Seniors is a donation drive in which people can visit their local London Drugs, choose a tag from the tree that contains the personalized wish list of a local senior. The gifts are then delivered to the seniors before Christmas.
Operation Friendship Seniors Society (OFSS) is an important pillar in the community. Through revenue from gaming and liquor activity, the AGLC is able to provide essential services to Albertans and distribute funds to many deserving Alberta organizations. Charitable gaming funds have helped for OFSS to provide community-based preventative social services and affordable, non-institutional housing options for senior citizens to improve their quality of life.
