SPONSOR A FAMILY
A great way to give back during the Christmas season is to sponsor a family who has registered to receive a Christmas Hamper. When sponsoring a family you are given: the number of family members, clothing sizes, toy requests for kids, and ages of the family members. The size and of family you support will depend on what works for you financially. Please click the link to email our sponsorship coordinator or call 519-669-5139.
DONATE NEW ITEMS
Donations of new clothing, new toys can be dropped off at Woolwich Community Services before December 10, 2021. Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase clothing, food gift cards, and a turkey/ham for each family. A donation receipt is given for any cash donation over $10.
Christmas 'Wish Trees' are located at Home Hardware Stores (Elmira, Linwood and St. Jacobs), Living Waters Book and Toy. An Adult 'Wish Tree' is located at Canadian Tire Elmira. Simply remove a 'wish' tag from the tree, purchase the item and return it to any of the above locations or the WCS office.
