Adopt-A-family


BECAUSE EVERY WOMAN DESERVES SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR HER FAMILY

You can help ensure that the holidays are happy and hopeful for the women and children in our shelters and programs.

Your donation to YWCA Toronto’s Adopt-A-Family Fund will help us leverage discounted pricing so we can purchase individual gift cards that help women meet the needs of their families during the holiday season, including food, gifts, and warm winter clothing.

We are so grateful that your generosity in the holiday season allows us to extend the program throughout the year, so that women and families can enjoy other holiday events and festivities in special, meaningful and memory-making ways.


“Thanks to Adopt-a-Family, I was able to buy the things I needed to make a wonderful Christmas Day breakfast and dinner for my kids. I am so thankful and know that I will pay it forward some day.” - Andrea

“I can’t imagine what the holidays would have been like without your generous donation. Thank you for making it a special time for me and my family.” - The Johnston Family

Here are some examples of the impact your gift will have:

$50 can provide a child's holiday gift. $75 can provide food for family celebrations.

$125 can help purchase clothing, footwear, and outerwear or stock extra groceries $250 can help several families offset cold-weather wear or transportation.
