Help bring joy, peace, and safety to marginalized women during COVID-19 by donating to the Adopt-a-Family Fund today. Because every woman deserves something special
for her family.

Your support, and the brightness it brings to the lives of the marginalized women and families we serve, are needed more than ever during this more challenging than usual holiday season.

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 during this difficult holiday season allows us to extend the program during this pandemic and beyond 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
