Shopping party with the Raptors!

We want to give a HUGE shout out to two amazing Toronto Raptors – Landry Fields and Steve Novak. Not only are they some of Toronto’s finest but they are two kind and generous guys! They wanted to do their part to help low-income families through the winter season.

In the years that followed with both of us in University we did what we could but money and time was always limited. It wasn’t until we both graduated and we were a bit settled that that we put a name to it and Holiday Helpers Canada was born.

Corporate Partners - we couldn't have done it without you!

Yes we know that Christmas is a distant memory by now for most, but at Holiday Helpers we are still on a high from our 2012 season! We would like to send a little love to all the corporate sponsors that helped make our 2012 season such a huge success.
