With its small town feel and big city amenities Chrisy and Jenn feel that Grande Prairie has a lot to offer. Both Jenn and Chrisy are active members of the community who share a passion for helping its senior population.
“Between the two of us we have lost a total of 6 grandparents. A loss this extensive is most often felt when you feel the need but cannot simply call up a grandparent or visit with them”. It is this sense of loss and their passion for helping seniors that inspired them to start the Dodd Harms Happy Healthy Seniors Fund through the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta.
“We want to make sure that seniors in our community continue to be looked after, and we want them to know they are loved and cherished. So often the elderly can be forgotten and we want to change that. We want to be able to provide financial support to organizations that work directly with seniors.” “Having the Community Foundation here to support the community means that Grande Prairie and area is being propelled into a community that flourishes, a community that looks after its people, a community that brings value, culture, support and more into individuals lives”. Says Jenn & Chrisy
