I would like to highlight a few of the local organizations I am involved with that you can support too.
Seniors Connect is a collaborative project focused on reducing the social isolation of adults age 55 and over in Nanaimo through participation in local activities, increased community connection and providing older adults meaningful opportunities for engagement.
