South Surrey-White Rock MP offering masks to seniors at no charge

Hundreds dropped off at care facilities, more available for pickup at Kerry-Lynne Findlay’s office

With Canada’s top health officials recommending the use of masks to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, South Surrey-White Rock MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay is helping to ensure that seniors who want the added protection have access to it, regardless of their financial circumstances.

To that end, Findlay’s office has donated hundreds of surgical masks to local senior care facilities and are continuing to offer them at no charge to all seniors – who are invited to pick them up from her constituency office at 15355 24 Ave.

Among the locations visited by Findlay and her staff as they dropped off masks, are Residency at Morgan, White Rock Seniors Village, Rosemary Heighs Seniors Village, Oceana PARC and West Coast Care.

“Many seniors mentioned that masks are at some places $15 or more, and that’s unaffordable to some, so MP Findlay wants to make sure that anyone who needs a mask has access to a mask,” notes a release from Findlay’s office.

Anyone who would like to take Findlay up on her offer is asked to call or email the office to arrange a time for pick-up. The phone number is 604-542-9495; email Kerry-lynne.findlay@parl.gc.ca
