Victoria Manor residents create uplifting gift bags for Victim Services

Filed under: ,
August 12, 2015 - KAWARTHA LAKES – Beginning this week individuals who rely upon the specially trained staff and volunteers of Victim Services of Kawartha/Haliburton will also receive support from residents at Victoria Manor.

The new program is the brainchild of Victoria Manor Life Enrichment Assistant Angela Everson, who is also a volunteer with Victim Services. Ms. Everson approached Tamara Curnuck, Volunteer Coordinator at Victim Services and spoke with residents to see if they would be interested in creating personal care bags to donate to Victim Services clients.

“I was thrilled with the response,” said Ms. Everson. “This is a great collaboration that assists clients of Victims Services when they most need it while helping to fulfill and enrich the lives of our residents.”

When approached a group of residents at Victoria Manor immediately took up the cause and were excited to be able to give back to their community.

Holly Speedie, Manager of Resident and Family Services, said the newly-launched program has been a wonderful addition for the residents at Victoria Manor.

“This partnership enables our residents to experience the intrinsic benefits of volunteering such as personal growth, and making a difference in others’ lives,” she said. “This program benefits both our residents and the clients of Victim Services.”

Once the care bags are complete they will be taken to Victim Services for distribution.
