Angel Tree is Back Once Again!
It’s only October, but here at Surrey Women’s Centre we are already looking towards Christmas and all that needs to be done to make the holidays special for women and children in need. Our Annual Angel Tree Christmas program is back again this year! Last year, with the help of our amazing and generous sponsors, we brought holiday joy to 500 women and children.
This year, we are asking for your help once again. We are in need of angel tree sponsors.
Here is how the program works:
We take down 3 wishes from each woman and child in need (roughly a $25 value limit for each). Sponsors let us know who they want to sponsor (ex. 1 woman, 1 family of 6, 5 children, etc.). We then provide the client’s wishes to the sponsors.
The sponsors buy and wrap the gifts and drop them off to our centre in time for Christmas.
Gift drop off week is the first week of December.
Clients are also sponsored through generous donations of unwrapped items to our centre. We are specifically in need of unwrapped toys, diapers, diaper wipes, baby formula, toiletries and other self-care items, scarves, toques, socks, candy, and gently used purses for our purse project program.
There are many ways to help a woman or child in need this year.
If you have any questions or to get involved, please contact Juspreet by email or call 604 589 1868 ext. 221.
