Every year, during the holiday season, the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness
provides assistance to over 2,000 families. It’s that time of year again and the number of families is greater than CCAA can accommodate. That’s why we provide our supporters the opportunity to Sponsor A Family with items on their wish list (new toys/gifts, gift cards, and other household items*). This sponsorship allows you to provide a family in need with a Christmas that they wouldn’t have otherwise.
How it Works
We have a waiting list of families. Should you choose to participate in this program, simply contact Denise Spector (firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-967-0687 ext. 223) and she will assign you to a family and provide you with the wish list they have submitted. Get your friends, family,…Continue reading Sponsor A Family!
