Paint a Gift for a Senior

Just a few of the gifts that have been created for Coaldale Seniors.  Thank-you to this generous and talented community.   We will be delivering during Seniors’ Week June 1-5

Help celebrate Seniors’ Week (June 1-5) by making a unique, one of a kind gift for one of the seniors in Coaldale. You will put a smile on someone’s face and let the seniors in our community know we are thinking of them!

Step 1:  Find a rock of any size and imagine what it could be turned into

Step 2:  Gather a paint brush and bright colors of paint (oil or acrylic paint will work best)

Step 3:  Transform your rock into a cheerful work of art

A few ideas are lady bugs, smiley faces, bees, sunshine, flowers.  Maybe you could make a happy swarm of honey bees, or a group of ladybugs or a multi rock earth worm .  Your imagination is the limit.

Larger rocks could be placed in gardens or yards while smaller rocks will brighten up window sills, counters or houseplant flower pots.

Make as many gifts as you like between May 1 and May 18. 

Once you have completed your rock, just give the Coaldale Cares group a call at 403-345-1324 to arrange a pickup date, time and location (last day for pickup will be May 18).  Place your gift on the curb in front of your house at the designated time and one of our volunteers will pick it up.

We will disinfect your rock gift and leave it undisturbed in a clean location until June 1.  During Seniors’ Week (June 1-5) our volunteers will deliver your gift to a senior at the Sunny South Lodge, the Long Term Care Unit, one of the manors or at private home.
