As you know our beautiful city has been completely ravaged by floods and though we are a tough group and take good care of each other, help and love is always welcome. Our friends at Calgary Municipal Land Corporation have teamed up with HUGS, please read their call to action and help if you can. Even the smallest of gestures can make a huge difference in someone's life.
Call to action to our East Village fans & supporters:
We don’t know when we’ll need you to volunteer for our community, but we will.
We don’t know when we’ll be able to collect donations for our residents, but we will.
We will need care packages, welcome home kits and plenty of man power to assemble them.
We are still under evacuation, we still do not have electricity, nor do we know when our residents will be able to return.
For those of you wondering how you can help, What we DO need from you right now are HUGS!
PLEASE write letters, cards, paint pictures and drop a sweet little “hug” into the mail that we can give to our 1200+ East Village residents, many of whom are seniors, when they return.
Let them know you’re thinking about them, sending them well wishes and that they are missed.
Help impacted flood victims, have you children, your school, church & community groups, and friends & family from all over the world send our seniors some hugs.
We will be collecting these cards and thoughtful notes and distributing them in our care packages when our residents are able to return to their homes.
Please send to:
