Help Make A Difference
Perth Enrichment Program for Older Adults enhances the lives of seniors, and adults with disabilities in a multitude of ways.
We are only able to do so through the support of our funders and generous donations made by people like you.
There are several ways you can help
We would like to thank the following for the opportunity of receiving a grant that supports the PEP Programs.
The United Way Lanark County for their support through a grant to PEP that allows us to offer our day program for seniors one day a week in Smiths Falls.
“One of United Way Lanark County’s priority goals – Successful Aging – is to help ensure seniors are able to stay in their homes and remain engaged in the community, while all caregivers feel supported,” notes Advisory Council Chair Helen McIntosh. “Programs like the one run by the Perth Enrichment Program for Older Adults helps those seniors in need within our community. The United Way is excited about the expansion of PEPOA’s programs from Perth to Smiths Falls, made possible with funds from our very generous donors. We look forward to seeing their new program succeed.”
The Perth & District Community Foundation (PDCF) for the grant allowing us to offer three different social events to give seniors in our community to socialize. Our first event was a St. Patrick’s Day Musical Evening with the Barley Shakers. A special thank you to the Perth Legion for supporting the event with the venue. The second event was a musical afternoon at Carolina Retirement Suites featuring Arlene Quinn. Our third event will be at Lanark Lodge in September. Participants that have attended have noted that they were still feeling the positive affects the next day! Thank you PDCF.

Be a Sponsor that supports client participation at PEP:
Why not consider as a business or individual donating sponsorship money to support the opportunity of a client attending that would otherwise not be able to attend. What a great way to support older people in our community.
