Senior Grant Community Program 2021 Approved
New Golden Thursday and Tablet Loan Program for 55 plus
November 22, 2021
Markham Wesley Centre (MWC) is very grateful for the $16,877 in funding from the Ontario Government's Senior Grant Community Program through the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility. There are many people who would be benefited from the Golden Thursday program. MWC has been serving the community for over 7 years. The Centre has been providing recreational and community programs to over 2, 000 members and the public. The Golden Thursday program will provide a platform and tools where seniors can come together to learn, socialize and stay connected with the community. Especially during this time of increased physical distancing and starting to enter into the post-pandemic, interaction with others, keeps mind healthy and body active are extremely important to isolated older adults as they become the most vulnerable. Along with a tablet loan program for seniors who are unable to afford the cost of owning mobile communication devices or less tech-savvy in the community can now enjoy using an up-to-date mobile device at no cost. We look forward to invite all our guests and members from our community to join our program or borrow a tablet for free. If you wish to enquire more details or interested in attending our next seminar or workshop, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
