We are incredibly grateful to everyone who stepped in this year to provide gifts to women and children in the Downtown Eastside.
With your help, we have far surpassed our goal and received over 950 gifts for women and children!
Due to this generosity from our supporters, we are unable to accept any more gifts. However, we encourage you to reach out to other organizations in the area. Please check back in with us in January 2021 to check in about our in-kind donation needs.
We are still accepting monetary gifts to assist with our ongoing programs and holiday meals throughout this season.
$5 gives a woman a day’s access to a hot meal, safe space, and support services
$150 gives a woman a month’s access to a daily hot meal, safe space, and support services
$750 provides a chicken dinner or other hot meal for women accessing the drop-in centre
$1,200 provides a special feast or holiday meal for women accessing the drop-in centre

Donate in honour of a friend or family member, and give a gift that nourishes and empowers. Your contributions make for meaningful Christmas gifts and sustain our ongoing work in the Downtown Eastside.
Fill out our tribute donation form. Under tributee email, you can put the email of the gift recipient, OR, your own email if you would prefer to print or send the acknowledgement yourself. You will receive the acknowledgement within a week. If you don’t receive it by then, contact us.
You can also choose for the gift recipient to receive their acknowledgement by mail, in which case we’ll send a postcard. If you would prefer to receive the postcard acknowledgement personally so that you can wait until Christmas, input your own address into the “Tributee Mailing Address” field.
