YWCA Toronto believes that all women and children deserve to enjoy the holiday season and experience hopefulness as they spend this special time of year with their family. 

Your donation to Adopt-A-Family will be converted into practical gift cards ensuring that each mother can select the particular gifts, food, and clothing that will match her children’s wishes and needs. This gives mothers choice, allowing them to celebrate the holidays with dignity and pride in accordance with their own faith and beliefs.

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

Here are examples of what your gift will do:

  $50 will provide a child's holiday gift or TTC tokens for a family.     $75 will help with additional food costs for family celebrations.
  $125 will help purchase clothing, footwear, and outerwear or stock extra groceries.     $250 will help several families offset cold-weather wear or transportation.
  $500 will provide support to several families for holidays and special occasions.    

















If you are making a donation on behalf of a group that will require multiple tax receipts, please call Neha Trivedi at 416.961.8101x360 to process your group gift.

“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.”
