Christmas Appeal

Sometimes the most meaningful holiday tradition you can have is making a difference for someone else.

Each December, our donors give what they can so our neighbours struggling with food insecurity can feel comfort and joy at Christmas. And here’s proof of the impact:

“Thank you all so much for helping. I am a single mom without enough income and had been worried about being able to provide Christmas. With the food support you gave, not only did my son have an amazing Christmas, I was able to use a little money I saved on food to get him a jacket for the winter months. You created so many smiles.”

This small note captures so much about the challenges many Nova Scotians face right now—stretching a little to go a longer way, the stress of providing not only the very basic needs for your loved ones, but also just making sure they’re happy. This is felt so acutely at Christmas, especially for those with children who want to make those moments of magic a reality. 

Right now, in your community, people are asking for help. And for some, it’s the toughest thing they’ve ever had to do. When they’re met with empathy, kindness, and the support they need, it’s because donors like you answered their call.

A one-time donation to our Christmas appeal will be put to work right away, providing support over the holidays and the weeks that follow. A monthly donation will have a lasting impact, ensuring year-round support. Whichever you choose, please know how much we appreciate your support.
