Adopt A Family

Beginning in early September each year, the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society reaches out to the community to help provide Christmas gifts to their neediest families. In 2017 - with the assistance of over 140 sponsors - 143 families and 249 children benefited from this program and the numbers are projected to increase each year. The Adopt A Family program has families that range in size from single people to single parent families with up to 7 children.

As a sponsor, you would indicate your preferred family size (or approximate budget) and once matched, you will receive a brief profile and wish list to assist in shopping for your family. Toys, clothing and household items are some of the most commonly requested items.

The holiday season is an especially difficult time for the families we serve. Help us make their wishes come true this coming holiday season!
