Waterloo Heights Christmas bazaar raises $481.85 to support Alzheimer Society

Outstanding support from residents and team members made the event successful

Waterloo Heights’ Dec. 1 Christmas bazaar was a major success, raising $481.85 to support the local Alzheimer Society. The event was made possible by an outpour of support from the Waterloo, Ont. senior living apartment’s residents and team members, says activity co-director Jacqui Reid.

Every year Waterloo Heights’ residents’ council votes on a charity to support through events during the 12-month period. In 2018 the council chose to support the Alzheimer Society.

The highlight of the Christmas bazaar was the myriad of baked goods available for residents, team members and people from the community to buy. This included lots of cookies and dessert squares that were either prepared at Waterloo Heights or donated by residents and team members. One team member donated Christmas bark, a crisp Christmastime dessert, Jacqui notes.

Residents played a large role helping prepare for the bazaar, baking cookies and squares during four different sessions before the event, Jacqui adds. Residents also helped plate the baked goods, and many donated their time to sell the goodies at the bazaar.

Jacqui extends “a big thank-you” to all the residents and staff members who donated their time to make the event a success.

The entire $481.85 in proceeds raised from the bazaar will be donated to the Alzheimer Society. The Waterloo Heights residents’ council will vote next year to support another charity in 2019.
