Have you got your grippers?

The new Get a Grip program  aims to get a pair of anti-slip and easy-to-use ice grippers onto the boots of every senior in Lanark County – for free. Ice grippers are available to pick up here at our office.

How does Get a Grip work?

Mills Community Support and its partners have funded the program through an ingenious pay-it-forward model. Those who can afford it buy a pair of their own for a modest $25, and a portion of this funds the gift of a free pair to someone who can’t afford it. Donations to the program are also gratefully accepted.
