CHILDREN’S AID HOLIDAY PROGRAM STILL HAS GAPS

CHILDREN’S AID HOLIDAY PROGRAM STILL HAS GAPS

As a result of the generosity of our community, over 650 families have been supported this Holiday Season by individuals, organizations and businesses. There are however still 61 families that have not been sponsored. While C.A.S have had significant donations of toys, clothing as well as household and personal items, there are still considerable gaps.

The Holiday Program of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation strives to fulfill the full spectrum of needs for the families and young adults living independently that benefit from this program. The Foundation will not tell a family that Christmas will not take place in their home as there is not enough funds.

As the holidays draw closer, C.A.S. are appealing to the community to help them meet a financial goal of $50,000. They are half way there. This would enable the Foundation the means to purchase items that will fulfill the wish lists of these 61 families. Many of us have so much to be thankful for. Those things that we take for granted during this special season will make all the difference to assure a Happy Holiday for these families and youth.

To make a monetary donation to the 2018 Holiday Program, please call 519-252-1171, ext. 3360 or visit online.
