Provide Christmas gifts to those impacted by family violence.

The Christmas season can be a difficult time for the families we serve. Many have left their belongings behind while fleeing violence and are starting over again. Help us make their Christmas brighter by supporting our Christmas Hamper program.

For over 20 years we have provided Christmas magic to families in need. By focusing on donations of new toys and gift cards, our aim is to empower Mom or Dad with the opportunity to be a part of choosing items that will make their child’s Christmas special. Mom or Dad will also receive a gift package.

Make a Physical Donation

From November 14 to December 20 drop off new toys, gifts for all ages, or gift cards at Sun Valley Honda or Davis GMC Buick in Medicine Hat.

Thank you to Sun Valley Honda and Davis GMC Buick for your support through being a donation drop off location!
