Ponoka Food Bank gets a boost

Seasons Retirement Communities in Ponoka made a $2,000 donation to the Ponoka Food Bank Association on April 8. As we enter the second year of living with COVID-19 restrictions, life has not been easy for many in our area. During it all, the Ponoka Food Bank Association has remained a primary source of community support.

At Seasons, we also recognize the importance of supporting those in need, and feel it is essential that we do our part to support the Ponoka Food Bank Association to provide relief to those in need in our community.

“We are thrilled to be making a $2,000 donation to the Ponoka Food Bank Association today,” said Stephanie Waldron, general manager, Seasons Ponoka.

“During the pandemic our community has really come together to support each other and this donation is our way to show our continued support of Ponoka.”

Seasons Retirement Communities has been a partner with Food Banks Canada since 2016. The company started to focus its corporate giving efforts on local food banks in the towns where residents and team members call home.

Since then, the company has donated a total of $180,000 in funds and food. Unfortunately, food insecurity is a growing problem that affects seniors, their friends, and the community in general. Seasons is proud to do its part to support local communities, especially during this time of great need.
