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. Holiday Care Kits 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 Fed Family, we sent out over 500 kits this year!
Donate to Holiday Care Kits!
How do you spread holiday cheer to youth in and from care all over BC? By mail! Along with our large Fed Family made up of organizations, adult allies, and other youth, we’re building Holiday Care Kits to send to youth in and from government care across the province!
Show some love to the youth in care community this holiday season and donate to Holiday Care Kits!
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
