In a local effort to help seniors stay healthy during the pandemic, the Yorkton & District Community Foundation coordinated packaging and delivery of over 9,600 masks to senior housing properties in twenty-three communities - Yorkton, Melville, Canora, Langenburg, Sturgis, Churchbridge, Kamsack, Preeceville, Norquay, Bredenbury, Ituna, Buchanan, Stenen, McNutt, Springside, Saltcoats, Pelly, Tantallon, Grayson, Invermay, Dubuc, Calder, Theodore.
Visitors to shared senior housing properties were restricted on and off during the COVID-19 emergency. The Seniors Mask Project was an attempt to help these seniors to safely receive visitors and to move within the community when they could.
Each kit contains a reusable cloth mask, ten disposable masks and information about care and proper use of masks.
The "Masks for Seniors Project was coordinated by Yorkton & District Community Foundation on behalf of a group of concerned citizens and community partners. We sincerely thank the following business partners who donated to this project: Grain Millers, Legacy Co-op, Canadian Tire, Baileys Funeral Home, Southern Document Solutions, Inc (Xerox Canada, Ltd.), Yorkton Rotary Club, and seamstress Judith Stewart.
