Working Hand in Hand for Seniors in Need
Amica HELPING HANDS Charity
Registered as a not-for-profit charity in 2003, Amica HELPING HANDS Charity’s sole mandate and mission is to help support and assist seniors in Canada, many of whom live under the low income cut–off (LICO). Every December, HELPING HANDS distributes baskets full of non–perishable foods, a gift certificate for a local supermarket, and a warm blanket to seniors in need. Most recipients of these baskets live alone and in poverty and a basket from HELPING HANDS will be the only gift they will likely receive for the holidays and throughout the year. These baskets are valued at $100.00 each. To date, we have distributed over 17,290 baskets!
In addition to the basket program, HELPING HANDS supports the work of not–for–profit agencies and community centres across Canada that assist seniors in need. HELPING HANDS donations have allowed agencies in both British Columbia and Ontario to provide funds to expand health, wellness and social programs; 15–seater passenger vans to organizations that support underprivileged seniors; renovate recreation rooms for wellness programs for seniors living in supportive housing; and provide equipment to senior centres in impoverished neighbourhoods to improve the quality of life of the seniors using the amenities.
