Senior Citizens’ Month 2020 & World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

June is Senior Citizens’ Month and June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.  NWT Seniors’ Society would like to support you to celebrate the contributions of older adults in your community.  You may be thinking that because of the COVID-19, we won’t be able to celebrate this year but see attached guide for some ideas of what you could do.  We know you are creative as well and will come up with your own ideas!

To qualify for funding for up to $400.00, please send along a short proposal on the form attached at the end of this letter.   Please send the form by May 31st, 2020.  A cheque for $200 will be issued as soon as your proposal is accepted.  A second cheque of $200 will be sent once your report is received.  Pictures of what you did would be very appreciated!

The cheque can be written to your Elders’ Council or Seniors Group so please include the address and name of the group who will receive this funding in your proposal.  It could also go to a Band council, Hamlet or local agency as long as activities are for seniors.  If you do not use all the money, please return the unused portion of the funding with your report.  The report needs to be returned after you have completed your event in June or no later than September 30, 2020.

          Thank you. If you have any questions please call me directly at 867-920-7444 or send me an email at  Have a wonderful Senior Citizens’ Month 2020 and World Elder Abuse Awareness Day!

Yours sincerely,

Suzette Montreuil, Executive Director
