Stuff a Stocking

Christmas at YWCA

With Christmas around the corner, we’re asking for your support of the Stocking Donation Program, which benefits the 21 women living at our Women’s Residence, 4 young women living at Harmony House, 3 young women living at Horizon House, 4 young men living at Fairwinds, 3 young men living at Unity House, and the 7 men who are living at Second Story.

YWCA St.Thomas-Elgin provides women, men and youth with some extra help during the holiday season. Your donations of cash, gift cards, or gift items help relieve the stress of the holidays for people whose lives are affected by multiple barriers including poverty and intergenerational trauma. With your generosity, the individuals we serve will be able to enjoy this holiday season.

Thank you for your consideration in donating to our Christmas Stocking Program. To provide enough time for us to package the gifts please drop off donations by Monday December 16th, 2019. Your small act of kindness will have a lasting impact on someone’s life.
