Thank you for being a Holiday Hero!

Year after year, our agency is overwhelmed by the number of people, families, and businesses in York Region who generously and thoughtfully donate to our Holiday Heroes program.

In December 2012, 1,700 children, 130 youth, and over 500 families were served by the program. More than 300 donors contributed including many of our community partners, local businesses, and local families who volunteered to adopt a family.

Special thanks to our major donors in 2012: York Regional Police, York Region schools, St. Andrew's College, Hasbro Canada, CGI, and Magna International.

The number of families our agency helps through Holiday Heroes continues to grow each year, and without the community's consistent and generous support this program would not be possible. It is hard to imagine that some families might not have had gifts to open or a holiday meal to enjoy without the Holiday Heroes program.

Words cannot truly express our gratitude for the way the community continues to step up to help those in need. You are all truly making a difference in peoples' lives. Thank you so much!

2013 Holiday Heroes program

Each year, community members and businesses generously donate new toys, new clothing, new winter outerwear, toiletries, gift cards, and food vouchers that are distributed to the children and families served by our agency.
