YWCA Toronto's Adopt-a-Family Program provides women and their families with some extra help during the holiday season. The campaign helps relieve the stress of the holidays for women and families whose lives are affected by unemployment, poverty, violence, and abuse.

With your generosity, the women and families we serve will be able to enjoy this holiday season. Please view our gift catalogue and make your selection in the donation section below.

  $50 will enable a woman to buy a holiday gift for her child.     $75 will help a young woman living in a shelter buy warm boots for the winter.
  $125 will help fill the pantry or provide a special holiday meal for a family.     $250 will provide a snowsuit, boots and clothing to keep a child warm this winter
  $500 will provide a holiday meal, new clothes and gifts for an entire family  


Every gift will help brighten the holidays for women and children. Make a special gift today.
