Community Care's Tag Day

May 29, 2020

Press Release

Community Care’s Tag Day

Another tradition is modified to meet today’s requirements in the 36th year that Community Care has organized Tag Day. The agency is holding a “virtual” tag day and has moved the event online.

This year it’s not possible to have volunteers do their traditional roles for this important fundraiser. Most years volunteers have donation boxes around their necks and are stationed at businesses throughout Picton, Bloomfield and Wellington, taking shifts canvassing in each location.

“People can visit our website to go to the special Tag Day page where they can make a donation to support seniors to live at home,” commented Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director of Prince Edward Community Care.

The special webpage is available anytime during the month of June which is Seniors’ Month in Ontario. Donations of any size are welcome.

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association supports seniors to live at home. Services include hot and frozen Meals on Wheels delivered anywhere in Prince Edward County, assistance with placing grocery orders by email or online, free pick up and delivery of groceries/medicines/essentials, reassurance programs, caregiver support, yard work and home maintenance.  The agency is partly funded by the Ministry of Health and supported by donations and community fundraising efforts.
