Important Information

Volunteers Needed

McKee is looking for volunteers to help out in the McKee Café. This is a fun and dynamic kitchen/café and volunteers are needed to help keep prices reasonable. If you can spare a few hours weekly preparing sandwiches, serving and having fun, please visit the Customer Service Desk for an application form and our Director responsible for volunteers will call you.

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.

Flu Season is Here

Be sure to take steps to stay healthy this Flu Season! Get your flu shot, wash your hands frequently, and cover your cough with your elbow to reduce the risk of respiratory infections. Stay at home if you think you have an influenza-like illness or a cold. Best to remain at home and limit exposure to others. 

Snow Angels

The Snow Angels is a Corporation of Delta program which matches seniors who are unable to clear snow from driveways and/or sidewalks, with volunteers who want to help out. Volunteers are matched with residents in their neighbourhood. If you, or someone you know, lives in Delta, and would like to access the service or learn more about the program, please call Kennedy at 604‐594‐2717 or McKee at 604-946-1411
