The PEGASIS partners (Sage is one of the partners) are participating in the Servus Heritage Festival this year (August 5-7). The partners will be taking care of the seniors rest tent and will be providing seniors with a shaded place to sit, rest and get some water. The partners will also share information about our agencies and the work we do with seniors. PEGASIS (Pan Edmonton Group Addressing Social Isolation of Seniors) Objective: To measurably reduce social isolation of “low-resource” seniors in Edmonton. Low-resource seniors has been defined as marginalized or hard to reach seniors such as those who are: homeless or near homeless; living with a physical or mental disability; newcomers or from ethnocultural communities; providing caregiving; living with low income or financially challenged.
For each of the three heritage festival days, there will be 9 - four hour shifts. Please find below role descriptions for each of the volunteer positions. Please note that all volunteers will receive complimentary food and water at the hospitality tent.
