WANTED: Donors to help low income families!

Wow, what an incredible response we have had from donors to buy presents for families! We have had so many people wanting to sponsor families that we were able to surpass our goal of helping 250 families to 270 families!

Over the years we have been affected by the economy just like every other business and charity but this year’s outpouring of support shows us how generous our donors are. When someone sponsors a wish list, it means that a low-income family will receive warm clothing, winter jackets, boots, toys and house hold items like sheets, blankets, cooking wear and dishes.   Not only are these items desperately needed to survive our cold winters, but they give the family a little boost in their spirit and lots of smiles. Everything comes beautifully wrapped and delivered to their home. Many of these families never celebrate the holidays because they can’t afford the tree or any presents for the kids.

But even though we have had an amazing response, we still need to raise funds to provide every family with a Christmas tree, decorations and a $100 grocery gift certificate. This package is $200 and we have only 70 families covered.

So we still have a long way to go and need your help. If you are interested in donating towards the Christmas tree and grocery package or a wish list, check out our website for all the details or email us at holiday.helpers@yahoo.ca.
