Armstrong-Spallumcheen seniors will benefit from some assistance.

The NexusBC Community Resource Centre, with support from the City of Armstrong’s age friendly community advisory committee, will have a volunteer at the Armstrong Seniors Activity Centre once a month beginning Sept. 17.

Stella Meger will help Armstrong seniors with pension and SAFER applications as well as provide resources such as information on housing and home support.

“I am really pleased to be considered for this opportunity,” said Meger.

“I’ve been working with seniors for nearly 10 years and am looking forward to being in Armstrong.”

Services will be by drop-in only from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month.
