Adopt a Family in Full Swing

Tis the season to celebrate the joy of giving from the heart. Bring warm holiday cheer to children and families through the Adopt a Family program.

Every year YMCA Calgary participates in Adopt a Family, allowing our staff, members and guests to provide meaningful gifts to families who need a little help during the holiday season. It provides much needed items to children and families in our community.

Every branch has family units listed by age and gender. The Adopt a Family displays in each branch have gift tags with the age, gender, family, and suggested gift item. All you need to do is take a tag, go shopping, and bring the unwrapped gift and tag back to your branch. YMCA staff will then wrap and deliver the presents just before Christmas.

These donations bring smiles to the faces of parents and children, providing happy holiday memories.

For more information or to donate, contact your YMCA Branch today.

Each branch has a deadline for gift drop-off:
Camp Chief Hector – December 16, noon
Crowfoot – December 19, noon
Eau Claire – December 19, noon
Saddletown – December 18, 10am
Shawnessy – December 9, noon (complete)
South Health Campus – December 19, 4pm

Thank you for your generosity!
