Christmas Program 2019

The Adopt-a-Family program is going on hiatus this year.  In its place, Hope for Children is expanding its toy and gift program for 2019.  Our hope is this will allow even more children and youth to benefit from your generous donations at Christmas as toys are equitably distributed to those we serve.  We welcome your participation.  

Christmas is a magical time of year.  But, it can also be an extremely challenging time for families as they attempt to give their children and youth an enjoyable Christmas. The financial stress of the holidays can be immemsely difficult for parents or youth living independently.  This year, Hope for Children is expanding its annual toy and gift giving program to those we serve.  Here is how it works:

1. Purchase toys or other gifts appropriate for children ages 0-12 or gift cards for youth ages 13-21.

2. Deliver them to our delivery site by Friday, December 6th.  (Please contact christmas@hopeforchildren.ca for further details)

* Items must be new and unwrapped.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept gently used items.  

You can help provide a Merry Christmas for a child or youth by donating new toys and other items.  Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for further information.

Thank you for your support!

NOTE: Tax receipts are not eligible for direct donations of gift cards or in-kind donations, including donations of toys and other gifts.  Online donations to our gift card program are eligible for a tax receipt.
