“Brother can you spare a dime” written by Yip Harburg and Jay Gorney became the most popular song sung during the 30s Depression when people who had very little were helping people who had even less.
Today 411 Seniors Society is asking you, our membership, if you can spare a small donation to help us carry on with our special COVID19 work.
411 Seniors Society has carried on throughout the early months of the pandemic by remaining in touch with members through “friendly” phone calls, by continuing to provide information and referral services, especially around government programs in support of seniors, answering specialized requests from members as needed and finally by reestablishing a process to carry on the free taxation clinics, digitally, with dedicated volunteers.
The Federal Government is giving each Canadian senior a $300 tax-free benefit the week of July 6. Some of us will need it for everyday basics. Others may be able to spare a little for a donation to 411 Seniors.
Every donation received will go directly towards member support.
Donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt. You can send a cheque to 333 Terminal Ave, V6A 2L7, or donate through the 411 website: https://www.411seniors.bc.ca/donate/
