The Project IRIS (Increasing Recreational Involving Seniors) team is still hard at work supporting local seniors and setting a record with their lunch-to-go program.
On the week before Christmas, IRIS delivered 171 lunches. But the seniors receiving the lunches got more than just food. Each delivery included a Christmas gift bag full of goodies including baking, puzzle books and a homemade Christmas card from the Robson Community School.
“The Christmas Cards were so amazing,” said IRIS coordinator Sandi McCreight.
“This amazing inter-generational connection project is an ongoing one and we look forward to seeing what’s next.”
McCreight reports that since COVID forced a switch in the way they offered programming back in March, IRIS has delivered 4160 lunch-to-go packages.
