LA Centre for Active Living
At times like this, a good crossword can make all the difference.
For some people social isolation is a hell-yeah excuse for two weeks of guilt free Netflix binge watching – bring on the Friends re-runs! But for the majority of us, it means challenges like balancing child care with work obligations, finding funds in an already tight budget to stock up on food and household supplies, and a decline in sales for business owners.
For the elderly members of our community who are the most vulnerable to the worst effects of COVID-19, social isolation is an necessary measure to avoid getting sick, but it can also lead to loneliness and depression. At the LA Centre for Active Living, a charity offering support and services to people aged 55 and older in Toronto’s West End community, they are working hard to support their members during this pandemic.
How you can help?
The Centre has identified members who would benefit from some extra mental stimulus during these isolating times. Things like games, puzzles, cross word and sudoku activity books. We can get 300-1000 piece puzzles for $10-15 each and Adult activity books with word searches, sudoku and crossword puzzles for $10 each. You can pool funds to help us purchase activities for up to 30 of the Centres’ members.
