Holiday Care Kits
The winter holidays can be a difficult time for youth in and from care. We know many of you feel an absence of the connection and belonging that are a big part of this season for many folks. We want to remind you that you're supported and cared for this holiday season with a Holiday Care Kit!
Holiday Care Kits will include items for personal care, fun, entertainment, warmth, treats, self-care and more. Our hope is that this little package of goodies reminds you that your Fed Family is thinking of you and sending you love.
With the help of our amazing Fed Family we were able to send over 500 Holiday Care Kits out last year. Let’s see if we can make that happen again this year!
Donate to Holiday Care Kits!
Want to spread some holiday cheer in the care community this year? Donate to Holiday Care Kits! Any donation helps us reach our goal of 500 kits! We will be able to provide a tax receipt for anything over $10.00 upon request.
We’ve had a HUGE response to the program from young people. Your support will help us reach an additional 350 young people across the province (a total of 500!) with Holiday Care Kits this year!
A $50 donation will cover a kit for one young person, but any amount helps! Donate via Canada Helps at https://fbcyicn.ca/ways-give
