FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Local seniors groups put out a plea for help after the announcement of the Covid-19 virus pandemic and Peace Seniors Connect & Care has stepped up to be a central place to collect supplies for local seniors and distribute them.

Through the Peace Seniors Care & Connect Group, the community has been generously donating items that are being requested such as;

Seimens-Ford shares items are collected in a dropbox outside of her home and then wiped with disinfectant wipes before delivery to the seniors.

Scheduled delivery for the items to go to the seniors is Wednesday and Friday this week. It is of utmost importance to Seimens-Ford that the local seniors are in no way struggling for items.

If you would like to donate to the seniors you can drop your items at 9103 87 Ave, Fort St. John.
