Amica Helping Hands started in 2003 and every December the charity prepares baskets filled to the top with non-perishable foods, a warm blanket and gift certificates for local grocery stores and pharmacies. They deliver these baskets to low-income seniors with the assistance of other charities. Many recipients of these baskets often live alone or in poverty.

 

In addition to Amica Helping Hands basket program they also support not for profit organizations all across Canada that assist in helping seniors in need. They do this by providing these organizations with funding for initiatives that improve the quality of life for seniors.
