Ways to help this Christmas

Ways to support Nova Scotians this holiday season



Help us purchase turkeys

There’s joy in giving! Start a new holiday tradition by donating $25 to provide a family with the centerpiece of Christmas dinner – the turkey! Last year we distributed 3,565 turkeys to our member food banks across the province. The number of applications for support is up this year, and we're looking to distribute additional hampers. Help families in need put the perfect punctuation on the holidays with a delicious and nutritious turkey. Click here to donate.


Donate to our Christmas Appeal

Help ensure Nova Scotians have food in their time of need with a one-time gift or provide support all year long by signing up for give12, our monthly donation program.


Donate food

We welcome perishable and non-perishable food donations at our office at 213 Bedford Highway, and non-perishable items through drop-off bins in Sobeys and Superstores in HRM. Get your friends, family and colleagues together to organize a food drive.


Case of Compassion

Through our continued partnership with Bishop's Cellar, we have a great lineup of wines again this year. Consider a gift for friends, clients, and employees. And of course, don't forget your own wine cellar! Learn more.



We have reached capacity for Adopt-a-Family and the program is now closed for 2016. We hope you will consider another way to help families in need this holiday season!
