CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2013) - With the help of volunteers, Secret Santas, donors and sponsors, Seniors Secret Service delivered 2582 Christmas gifts to isolated seniors in Calgary and area. This was a record year for senior nominations. As a volunteer based organization, we had an overwhelming flow of volunteers, donations and support. Santa's workshop was wall to wall with boxes of beautiful gifts donated by our Secret Santas.
Our thanks to all of the care facilities and senior organizations who provided senior nominations and distributed the gifts. We are grateful to all the Secret Santas, Birthday Elves, Card Makers and individuals who donated items and cards throughout the year. Much appreciation to all the volunteers who participated at the gift sort and to those who were able to lend a hand during the weeks leading up to Christmas.
We would also like to thank all of the Corporate donors and supporters whose efforts helped make this year such a success. We would like to recognize our two lead sponsors: The team at West Direct who donated their services to deliver gifts to 75 care facilities and senior organizations and the staff and management at CBVL who provided warehouse space and much needed help loading and unloading trucks. A big thank you goes out to Calgary Police Services for providing gift drop off locations at their district offices again this year.
Senior Secret Service keeps the cheer going all year by offering a birthday program for isolated seniors. We are collecting your spare pocket change and idle pennies and turning them into birthday gifts for seniors. Your donation will help bring a smile to a very deserving member of our community. Learn more about our Idle Penny Campaign. By reaching our target, we will be able to provide gifts to 400 seniors and ensure they will not be forgotten.
