Giving Tuesday Now: Fighting COVID-19

#ToguetherWeStand #GivingTuesdayNow

Published 05/05/2020

GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.

Abrigo Centre brings people together

Like most frontline social service agencies, Abrigo Centre’s doors are closed because of COVID-19 but their daily work continues. At this difficult time, one set of Abrigo clients need our special attention.

There are seniors in our Life and Hope group at greater risk because of COVID-19. It’s not necessarily a health concern. Instead, food security is the real issue for some.

With a small fixed income and extremely limited resources, some seniors count on the breakfast and lunch they receive three days a week at Abrigo. With the agency’s doors temporarily closed, these individuals are more vulnerable than ever before.

Help Abrigo purchases food vouchers to send to our seniors. Your financial support means that together we can feed those in need. Please make your safe and secure donation now.

Make a donation and help a senior in need today. 


The COVID-19 pandemic has hit ABRIGO all hard. Yet, some in our community are taking the sting of the virus’ punch more than others. Your donation today will make a difference for an Abrigo senior.

Please know that Abrigo counsellors are making regular check-in calls to ensure all our clients are doing okay.

Thank you for your support of this special Giving Tuesday initiative!
