SouthWest Edmonton Seniors Association (SWESA) is one of Edmonton’s newest seniors’ centres and we invite you to join us! SWESA is member-driven, working in concert with community groups and partners. Our programs and services empower older adults in southwest Edmonton to be active and feel part of a vibrant community of seniors.
Through a number of community locations, SWESA offers such as:
• Instructional Classes and Drop-in Activities (e.g., fitness, arts and crafts, informational talks and workshops, games and cards, coffee and chat)
• Services (e.g. access to home support services, book shops, a puzzle exchange, volunteer opportunities).
• Events and Activities (e.g. choir, book club)

SWESA’s Annual Appeal is held each fall as an opportunity for members and the general public to support SWESA. Fundraising accounts for one third of SWESA’s operating budget.
Donations are also welcome anytime during the year. All donations, big and small are appreciated. A tax deductible receipt is issued for any donation of $20.00 or more.
Proceeds from this year’s campaign will be used to expand our range of programming, keep fees affordable and provide both in-person and remote program participation options.
“Friends come into your life for a reason. SWESA came into my life as a miracle. As we age we lose our friends for many reasons and life can become lonely. I joined SWESA and life returned. I have met so many lovely new friends and reunited with friends from years ago. After the recent loss of my husband, I received such kindness and compassion from SWESA friends.”A Kulak, SWESA member
Thanks to early gifts from our Friends of SWESA we have been able to match the very generous donation of $10,000 by an anonymous community philanthropist!
