A call for messages for Castlegar seniors

Part our of Christmas Eve edition will be dedicated to messages for isolated seniors

The pandemic has impacted Castlegar in many ways, some visible, some invisible.

British Columbians continue to work hard to bring COVID-19’s second wave back down.

Necessary isolation hits especially hard as the holidays come around. Among the most impacted groups is one of our most vulnerable – seniors. Some of them have not been able to see their loved ones for months, and with that isolation comes heartbreak, despair, or worse.

Castlegar News extends a call to action. We would like to dedicate space in our Christmas Eve edition to personal messages from family and friends to seniors who are in isolation. These should be no more than 50 words and can be addressed to a specific person or people, or general sentiments.

Submit your messages of love and care to editor@castlegarnews.com.

This holiday season especially, we want to ensure no one is forgotten. Please join us!

If your business or oraganization would like to sponsor one of the Messages to Seniors pages, contact Zach at sales@castlegarnews.com or call 250-365-6397.
