Fighting summer hunger: On June 27, residents and staff at Seasons Ponoka donated $2,000 to the Ponoka Food Bank to help fight summer hunger. Seasons Retirement Communities across Ontario and Alberta donated a total $40,000 to food banks in June. Pictured left to right: Liz Boardman, Evelyn Lubbers, Adelle Abt, Yvonne Jones, Gladys West, Stephanie Waldron (general manager). In the front row is Martha Ackerman. Upon learning that food bank donations drastically decline over the summer, Season Retirement Communities decided to shift corporate giving efforts to help fight hunger at a time when donations are more urgently needed. Donations can be made by visiting www.foodbanksalberta.ca. Photo submitted
