Register or donate by December 5th to support a family in need.

‘Tis the season of giving! Last year, a record number of families in need were supported through Closer to Home’s annual Adopt-a-Family initiative. With Calgary’s economy struggling, our donors stepped forward to make sure their neighbours had a joyful Christmas.

Closer to Home is committed to supporting Calgary families throughout the year, whether they need help with emergency food hampers, money management, employment services, parenting courses, youth programs and more. But at Christmastime, the need for extra help becomes increasingly urgent.

You can put a smile on the faces of families in need this holiday season.

There are two giving options:

Step 1: Review the suggested gift value guidelines below and determine which family size you would like to support.

Step 4: Take the family’s wish list with you as you shop!
