Easter Cards 2021
At the beginning of April 2021 the Community Projects Committee designed Easter Cards to deliver to residents in retirement communities. A total of 400 cards were delivered to senior residents including; GEF Senior Housing in South Edmonton, Mcconachie Gardens in North Edmonton, Lifestyles Options in Leduc, and Rutherford Heights in South Edmonton. The purpose of creating these cards was to reach out to the aging population with the aim to lift spirits during the Easter holiday due to these isolating times. All the pictures and messages in the cards were designed by WICS customers and staff. We have received positive feedback for this compassionate gesture. We hope to continue to use this form of creativity in the future to reach out and show our humanitarian efforts.

WICS Annual Blood Drive 2021
WICS sponsored our annual blood drive on February 23, 2021 at Bethel Lutheran Church in Sherwood Park. This is something that we try to do at least once a year, but because of Covid-19, it looked a little different this year. Despite this, we had a number of individuals from the community donate blood including five WICS customers and staff.
