Seeds of Hope – planting party at Meridian Credit Union

Seeds of Hope – planting party at Meridian Credit Union

On Thursday April 23, the Alzheimer Society of Ontario and Meridian Credit Union staff showed up to work extra early. The Meridian Credit Union at 26 St. Clair Ave East in Toronto hosted a planting party to kick-off the #SeedsofHope campaign.  It was a special morning for both organizations who jointly planted Forget Me Not seeds in honour of all the people affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias across Ontario.

The Alzheimer Society #SeedsofHope campaign is helping to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and rally support for increased funding for long-term care and a future cure.  Here is a sneak-peak look at the early-morning planting party…
