CRNs at Work

Castlegar CRN





Through their Kootenay IRIS program, their dedicated team of volunteers, community partners, and staff continue to deliver fresh and healthy lunches to 170 seniors. This month, they also found the time to provide It’s Not Right! and Gatekeeper training to the community. Whew!

Check out their latest CRN newsletter! Lots of great information on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) 2021, the latest statistics on adult abuse and neglect, and an upcoming educational webinar hosted by Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam Police.

The team has organized a weeklong community Seniors’ Week from June 7-12 as a lead-up to WEAAD on June 15. (The community’s second annual Fabulous Seniors Photo Contest is currently underway too. Deadline for submissions is June 12!) View more info on the festivities!

Most local CRNs are preparing for #BCCRNWEAAD2021. Be sure to contact the CRN in your neighbourhood now to get involved. Look for more photos in our annual WEAAD edition next month!
