Adopt-a-Grandparent Grows in Second Year

It'll be another special delivery this Christmas courtesy of hundreds of children in Southwestern Manitoba.

Sunrise Credit Union's Adopt-a-Grandparent program grew in its second year in 2021, with 31 schools in 17 communities participating.

Students decorated, coloured, and wrote messages on more than 2,600 cards which will now be distributed to 56 Personal Care Homes, Retirement Residences, and similar facilities in Southwestern Manitoba. The cards should be delivered to facilities next week, in time for Christmas.

Sunrise Credit Union followed proper protocols and Shared Health Manitoba guidelines for the Adopt-a-Grandparent program.
