Family and Children’s Services of Renfrew County has long recognized the growing needs of the families served by our multi-service organization. With this recognition, we have endeavoured to support our families in the community by providing for their children during the Christmas season.
Our Christmas Gift Program helps families across Renfrew County and provides gifts to children from birth to the age of 16 years old. It also assists youth between the ages of 16 and 21 who reside independently and would not otherwise receive a Christmas gift.
During the 2017 Christmas season, over 250 referrals were received from workers within our agency. To meet this need, businesses, organizations and individuals in the community generously supported our efforts.
If you or someone you know is interested in supporting our Christmas Gift Program, you can do so in one of three ways:
1. Sponsor a child – you will be able to shop for a particular child with some information from their wish list and items they need.
2. Donate items – you can simply donate newly purchased items and we can suggest gift items in need
3. Donate funds – if you don’t have time to shop, we will do it for you! A monetary donation will be used to purchase gifts for those who do not get sponsored.
If you are interested in participating in our 2018 Christmas Gift Program, please contact us at 613-735-6866.
