Alberta Blue Cross is celebrating their 75th Anniversary by honouring volunteers and organizations that contribute to community wellbeing. The Community Wellbeing grant program celebrates our province’s exceptional volunteers by giving out awards of $1000 each, plus another $1000 to the charitable organization they volunteer with. This program rewards people who are making a difference in the health and wellness of Albertans.
We nominated our volunteer, Brigitte Lacroix to receive this grant. Her dedication to our mission and hundreds of volunteer hours delivering peer support and social activity programs with us has far-reaching impacts on the wellness of individuals and families in our community. Brigitte was one of only 75 chosen across the province to receive this grant. Congratulations and our heartfelt thanks go to Brigitte!
2022-23 was a challenging year. Post Covid inflation increased our costs to deliver the programs and services our community depends on for mental health support and promotion. We are so grateful for our funders and for the donations given by individuals in our community. We won't list all the private donors, but allow us to thank the businesses and organizations that helped us this year.
