There is something about the holiday season that calls to a special place within each of us. There is something about the magic in the air that makes us want to ensure no one is left behind.
The Adopt-A-Family program provides Christmas hampers to low-income families referred to us by counsellors working in recognized social service agencies. Eligible families cannot have received a hamper in the past three years and will not receive any other hamper during the holiday season.
If you have any questions, please use the contact form to email us!
Donor registration for 2021 is now open. If you would like to Adopt a Family please access the donor registration link HERE. Donor registrations will close Nov 26, 2021.
Drop-Off Day/Location – Drop off takes place on Saturday, December 4 exclusively. If you are NOT able to drop off the hamper on this date, please find someone who can, OR consider donating gift cards or making a monetary donation, that can go towards a hamper for a family instead. Please indicate AAF in the appropriate field if making a cash donation. DONATE NOW.
To streamline tax receipting in 2021 you will need to complete both the physical tax receipt form with hard copy receipts as well as a digital version of your tax receipt form. You’ll also need to complete a gift card inventory form. Downloads for physical forms and link to the digital form below:

We are always in need of grocery and other gift cards (Walmart, Superstore, Old Navy, and Children’s Place are some of the most common needs we have).
Families Looking to Be Adopted/ Agencies:
All referrals to our program MUST come through a registered social agency. We request that all families being referred are participating in a social program of some variety within that agency. If you are a family looking to be referred in 2021 and are not yet working with an agency please phone 211 to be directed to social agencies that fit the needs of your family. Agency referrals open October 12, 2021.
