A Monumental Feat: Helping #500Families, 20 years later

Just hear those sleigh bells jinglin', ring ting tinglin' to…

Thanksgiving has passed and our holiday senses have kicked in. Maybe it's because Christmas décor is everywhere: at the mall, on the radio, even on subway advertisements. So, it's not surprising if you have yourself thinking, "what can I do to help this year?"

Well, we wouldn't consider ourselves to be Santa, but our team is ready to look at the wish lists of 500 local families and check them twice! Since 1996, Holiday Helpers Canada has been growing in popularity as the top charity to sponsor local families, and we are currently accepting sponsors to sign-up for a family wish list.

Since our doors are open and the Christmas campaign is in full swing, Holiday Helpers are chiming in with, "Play Santa with us!" "… and, here's how!"

Playing Santa with Holiday Helpers

Smiling Santa

Holiday Helpers Canada is a non-profit organization that provides a Christmas experience to low-income families across the Greater Toronto Area with a one-time holiday package. This is Holiday Helpers' 20th year in operation and the 2016 holiday season is going to be our most successful year yet! Our goal is to provide 500 families with a memorable Christmas season, as well as spreading the joy of giving back to all of our volunteers and donors that participate this year.

You have the opportunity to come together with family, friends and colleagues to give a parent and their child(ren) the joys we all take for granted: winter coats, hats and mitts, a holiday dinner, toys and houseware, even a Christmas tree! We can link you to a family in need and provide them with the items that they have asked Santa (you!) for.

Getting Ready to Deck The Halls

Of course, Santa needs some elves to figure out how to give personalized presents! It's easy to choose how you can help:

The holiday season is the best time to get social, so it's a great idea to talk with loved ones and take action. And any of our past donors and volunteers will attest that our spots fill up quickly!

It's the Most Wonderful Time...

We are so delighted to enter our 20th year with more support than ever before! Visit holidayhelpers.org for more information on us and what you can do to get started. Let's surpass the goal of helping #HH500families!
