Holiday Happiness


The response to Holiday Happiness has been very overwhelming

and our 2021 campaign was a resounding success!!

We can't thank each and every one of you enough

for supporting Calgary Seniors and the clients we serve.

Because of folks like you, Calgary will be a better and kinder place for older adults!




Your support of Calgary Seniors has been instrumental in helping us to respond and adapt quickly during the ever-changing pandemic.

Thanks to compassionate donors like you, we were able to enhance our programs and implement creative strategies to reach at-risk and isolated seniors and meet their ongoing challenges. 

In 2021 alone, our Calgary Seniors volunteers have contributed 113,953 hours serving our clientele.

As we approach the holiday season, we want to take time to thank you for all you’ve done to make our city a better place not only for seniors, but for everyone.

Adopt A Grandparent is the biggest annual fundraiser for Calgary Seniors and this year we have made an important change to our campaign to better reflect the changing needs of the seniors we serve in Calgary.


Adopt A Grandparent will now be known as Holiday Happiness!


Why the change?

This year we have met with and seen many older adults with pandemic fatigue. Calgary Seniors wants to bring some cheer and joy to them in the harsh winter months. The Adopt a Grandparent title – while effective – doesn’t speak to the overall change that Calgary Seniors has seen over this year and expects to see in the future months.

Your support means that Calgary Seniors can continue to care for the growing and changing needs of older adults in our community. We offer our programs and services to low-income seniors free of charge; therefore, fundraising is essential to our operations.

With Holiday Happiness, we have three simple and effective ways for you to get involved!

Happy Holidays!
