Why Plan Your Giving with Us?

Good Neighbours Active Living Centre (GNALC) is a warm and friendly place. It is a safe environment for those 55 and older to meet new people, share interests, be active and lead productive and healthy lives.
Our programs and services are enriching the lives of many both at the Centre and in the community. GNALC provides opportunities for making friends, exploring interests, staying healthy, getting assistance with daily living, and helping others through volunteering.

 

Good Neighbours lets me mingle with people in my age group who share similar memories and interests. The friendly environment allows me to participate in programs and events as I am ready and make new friends as I do. -John F.

“I’m bored,” and “I have nothing to do.” These are two statements I very rarely use since I joined Good Neighbours ten years ago. I have become useful as a volunteer and fitter with the exercise programs I enjoy. I have learned new and fun things. Best of all, I have made good friends. You simply have to come here and find the programs that make you happy...-Gloria F.
