Residents at Evanston Summit wanted to help people in Calgary who may need a hand this season.
Winter can be beautiful in Alberta, but not everyone has access to items to help ward off the chill when temperatures drop. Residents at Evanston Summit wanted to help people in Calgary who may need a hand this season.
Residents donated two bags of items they knitted. They also generously contributed nearly $500 from their resident fund to purchase warm socks and gloves to donate to the Calgary Drop-In Centre.
“The Drop-In Centre was thrilled about the donations and the gesture really warmed the hearts of their staff,” says Evanston Summit Activity and Volunteer Coordinator Victoria Slany, who delivered the items.
The mission of the Calgary Drop-in Centre is to welcome adults at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Working collaboratively, the organization provides access to a spectrum of care that supports each person’s transition to the most independent living possible—including emergency shelter, programs and services, and affordable and supported housing.
