Annual Gift Drive
As another year comes to a close, we look back with gratitude at the continued generosity and support we have seen from our Parkinson’s community. We also reflect on those we have lost, the newly diagnosed, and the ongoing struggles and joys of people living with or loving someone with Parkinson disease (PD) or a Parkinson’s Plus Syndrome (PD+). It’s because of you, your experiences, ideas and generosity, that we continue to be motivated every day. Thank you!
2022 has been both rewarding and challenging. With more than 250 new clients to date, we are grateful that value is being found in program participation as we see the numbers grow. This summer’s social activities served as an amazing way for nearly 600 people across the province, both new to us and familiar, to come together and learn from and support each other. Increased participation in programs like Ambiguous Grief and Loss and Thinking, Memory and Concentration have demonstrated a high need for targeted support. We continue to learn from you and look forward to sharing both continuing and new programming in 2023.
December is also the time of year when we are thinking about our annual donations and the upcoming tax season. Canada has a generous tax credit system for donors to charities and the benefits can be significant. Thank you to all our past and current supporters for considering us in your charitable giving this year.
We know that the rate of diagnosis for Parkinson disease is increasing rapidly in our province and with your support, we can continue to meet the needs of this growing community.
