It was back in August that The Lending Cupboard first found out that it was a nominee for the 2018 Minister’s Senior Service Award. On October 1st at Government House in Edmonton The Lending Cupboard was presented with that award by the Honourable Minister of Seniors and Housing Lori Sigurdson and  Her Honour Lieutenant Governor Lois Mitchell.

I was honoured and humbled to be  amongst such wonderful citizens from across the province that give to their seniors in our communities. Joined by members of our Board of Directors, I was honoured to accept this award on behalf of our incredible team. Our dedicated Board of Directors, 5 part time staff and over 70 volunteers who last year gave over 11,000 hrs. They are the true heroes of our organization. This award recognized and validated the incredible contribution we are making to so many clients and their families.

– Dawna Morey, Executive Director, The Lending Cupboard
