Leading Change

The Dodd Harms Happy Healthy Seniors Fund

With its small town feel and big city amenities, Grande Prairie has a lot to offer Chrisy and Jenn. While Chrisy has lived in the Peace Region her entire life, Jenn has called the area home since 2001. In their time here they have seen the area grow and transform into the wonderful region it is today.

Both Jenn and Chrisy are active members of the community with a passion for helping our senior population.

“Between the two of us we have lost a total of 6 grandparents, and a loss that extensive is so often felt when you cannot simply call up a grandparent or visit with them” Says Jenn and Chrisy.

It is this 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 are looked after, and we want them to know they are loved and cherished. So often the elderly are forgotten – and we want to change that. We want to be able to provide financial help to organizations that work directly with seniors.”

Through the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta Jenn and Chrisy are able to reach their goals of creating a lasting support for the senior population.
