Important Information

The Purple Hat Project

Thanks to all the knitters who participated in the Purple Hat Project to raise awareness for Prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome BC. The final tally was 2,444 hats from the volunteers at Kennedy, which far surpassed the goal of 2,000.    

Financial Abuse

Financial abuse is the most common form of elder abuse in Canada. It is the illegal or unauthorized use of someone else's money or property. It typically includes pressuring someone for money or property, but may also involve forcing or tricking you into doing something that you aren't comfortable with or don't understand. If you believe that you may be a victim of abuse, seek help from someone you trust.      

Shop by Phone

This is a FREE service available for individuals who are unable to do their own grocery shopping. For more information, please visit the Ladner Save-On-Foods to register. If you would like to volunteer to help take orders or do the grocery shopping, please contact McKee Customer Service Desk at 604-946-1411.
