In 2017, Links2Care’s Annual Holiday Giving Program provided 326 Halton Hills children 0-16 years of age from lower income families with new pajamas, socks, underwear, and toiletries through the support of businesses, individuals, and community and faith groups, who sponsor families financially and through donations. Most of these families struggle financially throughout the year and this program helps to reduce their stress levels during the holiday season. Because of the generosity of our caring community, and with the support of the United Way, we are able to continue to offer this needed program in Halton Hills.
If you reside in Halton Hills and this holiday season will be financially challenging for your family, applications are available at our offices, on our website www.links2care.ca and at various local support agencies. Personal information is kept strictly confidential.
Application deadline is December 7, 2018.
Once again, this year, we anticipate that applications will pour in faster than we can find generous community members to sponsor them. So if you’re looking for a way to give back to your community and combat the season’s growing commercialism, becoming a Holiday Giving Sponsor is a simple way for individuals, families, community groups, co-workers, and businesses to make a difference and feel the true meaning of community this holiday season.
As a Sponsor, you will be provided with a family profile with children’s genders, ages, sizes and clothing needs so that you can have fun shopping for the items on the list.
Monetary donations are also very much appreciated, and can be allocated directly to this program upon request.
