OnGoing Service Projects
Nursing Home Visits
the second Sunday of every month the members of our centre entertain residents
Nursing Home. We sing songs that the residents
are familiar with, and encourage them to sing
along with us. The singing of such songs brings
back good memories for the residents and brightens
their day. The Centre's
nursing home visits are at Norwood
Nursing Home (122 Tyndall Ave.) Both occur
on the second Sunday of every month simultaneously
from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM.
Food Drop Off
Sunday, our centre members set aside a few items from their personal grocery
list to donate to those less fortunate in the Greater Toronto Area. The centre
members bring with them to the centre such items as: cereals, pastas, and various
canned goods. Once all the donations are gathered up weekly, a member of the
Service Wing drops them off to a local area shelter or food bank.
every three months we have a wheelchair clinic session at an apartment building
and each time it's a different location.
The volunteers from our centre, clean approximately 10 to 15 chairs at each location.
The wheelchairs are cleaned thoroughly from top to bottom, with all mechanical
parts oiled and air tires filled. As the volunteers from our centre worked on
the wheelchairs, they conversed with the occupants. The objective of such an
exercise is not only to clean the wheelchair, but to make the day enjoyable for
service activity happens twice a month for our members on the 3rd and 4th Saturday
of every month at Council Fire,
which is located in downtown Toronto. This location was refurbished by our members.
The basement was cleaned and the entire hall and kitchen area was repainted and
made new, to allow our brothers and sisters in need, to have a nice place to
enjoy a decent meal, in each others company. Our members lovingly prepare and
serve a hot meal, juice and an ice cream dessert to the needy of that specific
project has been started to address the needs
of the 'Sai Family' members of our centre. The
need could be anything from bereavement within
the family, to personal or family problems.
