At WINGS, we continue to provide a warm, supportive home, counseling and life skill programs, to women and their children who are escaping abusive homes. During the Christmas season, support from the community is especially needed, as our families often struggle to make ends meet, particularly with the recent increased costs of living.
There are a number of important and meaningful ways you can help this season. Thank you for your support!
Contact Debbie at email@example.com if you’re interested in being paired with a Home Next Door family to sponsor for Christmas. Sponsors will be provided with a Christmas Wish List from the family as a general outline – remember this is a wish list and families do not have the expectation that they will receive everything on the list! Wish list items might include gift cards, toys, books, groceries, clothing etc. Families are always greatly appreciative of the gifts they receive and overwhelmed that people in the community are thinking of them over the holiday season. Most of the time, sponsors will deliver gifts directly to the families; however, there are families who wish to remain anonymous for a variety of reasons, so then we will ask the sponsor to drop the gifts off at WINGS front office. Thank you for your support and understanding.
We work to brighten the season by providing WINGS families with gifts to let them know they are loved and supported – most importantly, that the community is thinking about them! This year we are requesting:
• GIFT CARDS – Walmart, All Grocery Stores (Sobeys is within walking distance), GAS Cards, Shoppers Drug Mart, McDonalds, Tim Hortons, Boston Pizza, A&W, Amazon, Google Play, Amazon, Clothing Stores – Old Navy, Garage, Dynamite, Southgate Mall etc.
• Toys for kids (all ages)
• Gifts for Moms
Why do the moms at WINGS love gift cards? It’s simple! Moms love to go shopping and purchase exactly what they need for themselves and their children. It gives women the opportunity to buy from the heart, and it encourages independence. Oftentimes when a mom is asked what she would like for Christmas, she can only name gifts for her children, but can’t think of anything for herself. Gift cards give the women more time to consider what they really need, and they can even make purchases in the New Year. P.S. Our teens love gift cards too!
The dollar amount on a gift card does not need to be large! Gift cards are distributed to families throughout the entire year.
Help us to purchase our most needed food items without leaving your home.
Poverty and food security is a significant obstacle for our families. Grocery Gift Cards, including Walmart, Sobeys, Coop, Superstore, Safeway, etc., are provided to the families throughout the year, especially during the holiday season. Gift Cards can be mailed or delivered to WINGS office, or you can make a donation toward food cost through our website which can also be used to purchase grocery cards.
WINGS offers specialized education and children’s programs throughout the year. We pride ourselves in providing hot lunch and nutritious snacks in our daycare, special meals during kids programs and family events, as well as food emergencies. Donate toward food supplies to help us continue to provide quality, nutritious foods and meals during the holiday season and throughout the entire year.
By making a sustaining gift through our monthly giving program, you will provide steady, dependable funding we can count on, in times both good and difficult. Any amount big or small makes a great impact!
*** Select the ‘campaign or event’ where you would like your funds to go, and then it will give you the option to donate monthly.*** Thank you for your support.
“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals.” We always love and appreciate when groups come together in support of WINGS! Whether it’s a group of co-workers collecting Christmas Gifts for our families, a sports team fundraising for WINGS, or a group of friends and family raising funds on our behalf. (Digital and Facebook Fundraisers are also an easy way to connect with your community to raise funds for WINGS too!) If your group would like to fundraise for WINGS this holiday season, or start a Christmas Gift Drive, please contact us!

Thank you for your support!
