At the heart of Operation Friendship Seniors Society is the McCauley Senior’s Drop-In Centre.
Seniors find a safe gathering place where they can socialize, develop friendships, volunteer, and become part of the community.
The Drop-In provides free nourishing meals, seven days a week. Both recreational and wellness activities are planned in addition to the meal program.
Bingo, games, a pool table, and cards are available as well as outings to sporting events, festivals, swimming, fishing, etc.
Foot care, flu clinics, a visiting public health nurse, showers, a change of clothing, and haircuts are all provided at the Drop-In.
It’s a place where I can go, meet people my own age. They have problems, they can be helped by me, or maybe they can help me. We can share problems. I feel safe here even though some of the people drink.” – OFSS Senior
