Raised by our residents, team members and corporate sponsors since 2003
Established in 2003, the Amica Helping Hands Charity supports Canadian seniors living under vulnerable conditions. Throughout the year, our residents and team members donate their time and talents into fundraising initiatives supporting the health and quality of life for at-risk seniors.
The charity also partners with local organizations and receives corporate sponsorship to assist seniors living in poverty and isolation, who need help now more than ever.
Below, Ashley MacLaren, our Senior Director of Brand Marketing, discusses where donations go and how every dollar makes a difference.
Come the holidays each year, Amica residents and team members fill baskets with non-perishable foods, gift certificates for local pharmacies, hand-knit items created by the residents and more. These baskets may be the only gifts low-income seniors receive all year.
We greatly appreciate all contributions that go toward our holiday basket campaign and our other initiatives.
Each year, we host our highly anticipated fundraising event, designed to be an evening of connection, thoughtful conversation and purpose. We’re thrilled to see its return this Fall of 2022.
This year, we welcome an exciting host and inspiring guest speakers, plus - for the first time - live music!
