Christmas Care Packages for Shalem

This pandemic has been especially hard on seniors. Not only are they most vulnerable to COVID-19, many are struggling with grief, loss, isolation and loneliness. 

This Christmas season, please consider donating a small care package to a Shalem Senior. We want to ensure every senior at Shalem receives a gift this Christmas! To do this, we need 140 gift packages. 

Can you help us? 

Some suggested items to include are: 



Hand sanitizer Homemade crafts 

Toiletries; lotions, hand wash, body wash Goodies; chocolate, chips, hard candies Home baked Christmas cookies Small Christmas ornaments/décor 

NOTE: Please do not include candles. Packages to be $25 or under in value. Please ensure the care package is contained in one gift bag and ready to be given directly to a senior. We encourage you to include a note, Christmas card or art from children, please only include first names. 

Please drop off by Dec.16th to Shalem Staff, Michelle Vanderwerff Address: 3520 49 street SW T3E 3Y3 

Please leave your gift bag in the bin labelled Shalem behind the front door stairs. Thank you for helping us care for our Shalem Seniors!
