Donations & Partnerships

Seniors on the Bow (SOTB) operates thanks to community support from partners and donors. These organizations helped fund the construction of the SOTB Centre, and grants and investments support its continued operations. 

To give back to the community, the SOTB Needle Arts Group regularly donates the items they create to charities, such as the Cochrane Activettes and the Calgary Drop In Centre.
