Holiday Giving - Presents of Peace
Ways to help a family in need this holiday season
Spread festive cheer to families in need with YWCA's holiday giving program.
|Give to YWCA Crabtree Corner – A donation to Crabtree Corner helps low-income families in the Downtown Eastside. Donations support Crabtree’s community kitchen, parenting groups, a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder prevention program, temporary housing and a drop-in early learning and care centre. Donate now.|
|Emergency Food Vouchers – In BC, 59% of the 108,000 families led by single mothers are living in poverty. It is often very difficult for them to afford even the most basic necessities. 100% of the funds raised for this program are used to purchase food vouchers at a discount, so your financial support will stretch even further. Donate now.|
|Support Shoes for Kids – A good pair of shoes is important for babies who are learning to walk and for physically active children. In response to the growing number of families who are unable to buy new shoes for their children, the YWCA launched the Shoes for Kids program in 2002. All the funds raised are used to purchase vouchers for modestly priced new athletic shoes for children who attend YWCA programs. Donate now.
