With in-person educational and social events off the table due to COVID-19, CARP is seeking ways to help older community members while maintaining physical distance.

The chapter has also given African violets, pens and Zoomer magazines to seniors’ retirement homes and had an online photo contest with cash prizes.

CARP is Canada’s largest non-profit advocacy association for older Canadians. Its mission is to advocate for better healthcare, financial security, and freedom from ageism.

Sources Community Resource Centres is a not-for-profit social services agency and registered charity providing support to individuals and families in Surrey, White Rock, Delta, Langley, Prince George and Parksville.
