4. Friends Program- It is that time of year when we send out our annual appeal for financial support for the Stepping Stone Senior Centre through our “Friends Program”. This effort, which began in 2012, has become a critical part of the Centre’s operating budget given that we are a non-profit entity. The success of this program is a direct result of the generosity and support of our Friends, for which we are truly grateful.
We want to stress that no donation amount is too small, however, tax receipts will only be issued for amounts of $10 or more. All donations go toward the costs associated with the delivery of programs and services for members.
