Unfortunately, that is the reality for many families this time of year. But we can all choose to do something about it.
The holiday season can be a time of sadness and disappointment for families in need, as things we take for granted such as hot meal and presents are simply out of reach. That is why Dovercourt Boys’ & Girls’ Club is collecting food and other supplies in the hopes of providing 400 families in Toronto with Christmas hampers this year.
This wonderful program couldn’t happen without the support of individuals, businesses, and amazing volunteers in the community.
Want to help? Here are 3 ways.
1. Donate Time
Dovercourt Boys’ & Girls’ Club is looking for volunteers to help with assembling the hampers in December.
2. Donate Stuff
They are interested in donations of:
Winter Accessories – New or gently used hats, mitts, gloves, and scarves
Bulk Food (they will also accept smaller donations as anything helps).
3. Donate Money
They are accepting monetary donations. Rest assured that 100 percent of your personal or organization’s contributions are given to families and people needing your help.
