Join us as we pay homage to the penny on Grandparents’ Day
All Seniors Care Living Centres are celebrating Grandparents’ Day and paying homage to the penny in all of their 18 All Seniors Care properties across five provinces during the month of September. They are asking everyone to collect their pennies and bring them to the retirement residence.
All Seniors Care Living Centres will be donating the pennies collected to the local food bank in each city and the Ottawa Food Bank is the recipient in Ottawa at their Beacon Heights location.
Amongst the fun, there lies a contest among the residences: each one vying to outweigh the others with pennies collected to present to their local food bank.
A celebration will take place on Sunday September 9th from 2 – 3:30 p.m. The event has a 1940s vibe including a swing band, penny candies, games, and more!
All are invited to the celebration on Grandparents’ Day – but in the mean time, feel free to stop by the Beacon Heights Retirement Residence at 2201 Montreal Road and donate your pennies!
UPDATE: $187 in pennies was raised for the Ottawa Food Bank!
