Amica Helping Hands Charity

Helping all seniors thrive

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.

Baskets of support

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.

Annual Fundraising Event

Our 2022 Inspiring Conversations Gala—an evening of connection, thoughtful conversation and purpose—was a wonderful success!

With inspirational and provocative speakers, live music, auctions and so much more, we came together in a beautiful way to help vulnerable seniors in Canada.

Learn more about the event below.  Event pictures and video coming soon!


Supporting not-for-profits

We also provide funds to not-for-profit organizations across Canada, such as seniors’ and healthcare organizations. If your organization supports vulnerable seniors, please contact us to discuss how we can help provide support.
