A HUGE thank you goes out to The Perth & District Community Foundation (PDCF) for their generous grant to allow us to purchase games for both our Games Nights and programming at PEP, but also for funds to help us with the cost of transportation of clients to the day program and evening events.
With the funds received a variety of new games for seniors will be purchased for our Family Games night as well as at the PEP Senior Day Program. These games will add to the interest and excitement of the Games Nights which take place on a regular basis throughout the year.
Funds are also being used to secure support in assisting us with the ability to offer transportation to seniors in the PEP Programs.
PEP is very fortunate to have a Social Committee that’s mandate is to:
Provide welcoming and inclusive social opportunities to older adults associated with the Perth Enrichment Program and their partners. To alleviate loneliness and the negative health effects related to social isolation.
The Social Committee has been developed in response to the need for activities in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere outside of PEP’s normal business hours. The social committee consists of a group of volunteers who donate their time to organize and facilitate a variety of social opportunities. Activities are to be held at 12 Elliot Street or any other suitable facility.
Funds given to us from the PDCF will help offer many different opportunities for seniors in the community to enjoy themselves at Games Nights and at PEP!
