The residents and staff at Garrison Place want to give back and contribute to the greater Fort Erie community.
They will collect donations of non-perishable food items for Community Outreach Program Erie in the parking lot at Sobey’s on Friday, May 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
They hope to fill the Revera bus with goods such as mac and cheese, canned tuna, peanut butter, jam and more. Afterward, they will drive the donations to COPE and deliver the goods.
“We love Fort Erie,” said Marilyn Boisvert, one of the staff of Garrison Place, and this is one way the independent seniors who live there can participate in the many good things going on.
“Garrison Place is a retirement residence with more than senior care – we are a great place to live,” Boisvert said. Retirement living is all about living, not aging and residents enjoy each day to the fullest.
The Revera bus takes them on many adventures, from wine-tasting in Niagara-on-the-Lake to the five-cent carousel ride in Port Dalhousie, she said.
“Our lively, vibrant and welcoming residents are independent seniors who will make you feel right at home,” Boisvert said.
Garrison Place is an apartment with all the perks, with home-cooked meals, weekly housekeeping and laundry, recreation facilities and fabulous entertainment, even Saturday afternoon barbeques in the back courtyard surrounded by nature, family, friends and community, she said.
“We are all about choices,” she said. “Garrison Place is your kind of place.”
