About the Independent Living Resource Centre of Calgary

The Independent Living Resource Center of Calgary serves people with disabilities, youth, families, seniors, and members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community.  We are dedicated to promoting and enabling people to achieve their own level of independence. It's our mission to provide the best possible referrals, training, programs, and activities impacting the lives of thousands throughout the community. Donations allow us to continue to offer valuable programs, and any donation made is matched by the Alberta Treasury Branch.

 

UPCOMING FUNDRAISER                       SATURDAY MAY 7, 2022                LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS

 

It is that time of year again. In partnership with Alberta Transportation, the Government of Alberta, ILRCC has been assigned a 10 km section of highway to clean up (we do both sides, so 20 km). Last year was our first year and we had about 16 volunteers and finished in about 4 hours - 5 hours. We are looking for volunteers to help with this fundraiser again. The cleanup area is straight east on Country Hills and we are cleaning up Highway #9.

We are able to raise 1,000.00 and the funds will go towards our community garden.

Spread the word and please reach out to ed@ilrcc.ab.ca or call us for more information.

If you don't drive, we can arrange a pick up at our office at 8:30 am Saturday, May 7. If you drive, we can provide a gift card for gas.

Thank you in advance!!!

Listen to the Independent Living song and Join the Movement!
