Our Current Campaigns

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.

Our second annual Giving Tuesday campaign is underway. Last year we raised $15,000 to make the season merry and bright for the nearly 4,000 low-income seniors who live in our communities. Because of your generosity, we were able to present residents and tenants with grocery gift cards to help with the rising cost of living.

We kindly ask you to donate to our Quality of Life Fund. It is compassionate donors like you who make an impact on the lives of others. We would like to thank the following donors for their generous contributions to the Quality of Life Fund in 2022:

London Drugs’ Stocking Stuffers for Seniors

You can help make the holiday season bright for seniors living in GEF communities by participating in the London Drugs’ Stocking Stuffers for Seniors 2023 Campaign.

Nearly 1,400 seniors across 16 GEF sites are hoping to be matched with a Secret Santa to make their holiday wishes come true. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, can make a lasting impact and create cherished memories for the seniors at GEF Seniors Housing!

From now until December 8, visit one of the participating London Drugs locations, choose a tag, and purchase items off the list for a special senior.

After selecting and purchasing your chosen gifts, return both the tag and the unwrapped presents to the Customer Service desk. Visit our YouTube page to watch our video on how it works!

Feel free to include a personalized message to the recipient. It’s a small gesture that carries immense significance, as it contributes to creating a brighter holiday season for a senior in your community.

This campaign provides a wonderful opportunity to share the spirit of giving and bring smiles to the faces of those who may be spending the holidays without family or friends. As one of our dear residents said,

“It’s amazing to participate in the well-being of seniors in Edmonton, Alberta. Let’s enlarge our horizons by giving to others!
