Every year, with help from our community members, The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk has been able to provide extra assistance to children and families we work with during the holiday season.
This year, to best meet the needs of families, we are requesting and graciously accepting gift cards and monetary donations to purchase gift cards, which we will distribute directly to families in need to help them purchase their own gifts, groceries and/or other essentials. We hope to have all donations received by Friday, December 10 to ensure delivery to families in advance of the holidays.
The pandemic has put strain on families who may already experience isolation, and they very much appreciate our support, especially during the holiday season.
There are a number of ways you can help a local child, youth or family:
- The simplest way to give a gift or make a gift donation is online through Canada Helps at http://www.cashn.on.ca/how-you-can-help/make-a-gift/ You can select a fund of your choice (General Fund for holiday donations) and add a message about your donation.
- Call the Society to arrange delivery or mail to:
The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk
70 Town Centre Drive, Townsend ON N0A 1S0
1-888-227-5437 or 519-587-5437, ext 235 or 298
- If you are purchasing a gift card, you might consider a local shopping mart or grocery store in your area.
