Holiday Support

Register as a Holiday Support Donor

The Holiday Support program works to provide families and youth in need in Waterloo Region with gifts during the holiday season and special occasions throughout the year. The program matches generous community donors with less fortunate families and youth involved with Family and Children's Services of the Waterloo Region.  Last year, generous donors supported over 2800 individuals and we are very grateful for their thoughtful contributions.

Register as an Emergency Support Donor 

The Emergency Support program works to provide families and youth in exceptional circumstances in Waterloo Region.  The program matches generous community donors with families and youth in crisis to provide financial support in the form of gift cards only.  Families and youth who were in need of items and toys are matched within the Holiday Support program and families whose needs extend beyond that, are supported in Emergency Support.
