Our 20202 Holiday Gift Program!

Give with impact this holiday season and discover the difference charitable gifts can make.


For over 1,000 families living on or below the poverty line in Halton, the Christmas holidays are difficult and challenging to say the least.


You can brighten the holiday season for Compassion Society families by providing special donations at this time of year.

Here are 2 ways you can help:


Please help us by donating retailer gift cards in any denomination. We call these Compassion Cards as they are the #1 way to demonstrate compassion to our clients. Retail gift cards empower Compassion Society families.  They allow them to select the items and experiences they most desire for the holidays. It's giving made simple!


Below are some ideas:





If you would rather not donate retailer gift cards, rest assured we will not turn away your donations of new, unwrapped gifts for adults, teens, and children this holiday season. But please note, due to space limitations, we cannot ensure these gifts will all be distributed in time for Christmas.


Most needed items: gifts for teens (female & male), winter boots (all sizes), sweaters and sweatshirts (all sizes), board games, toys, toiletries, small appliances, towels, blankets, sheet sets, pots and pans, etc.

To Corporate/Business donors:

We’re a key link in Halton's charitable sector. Doing social good is a powerful way to enhance your brand and motivate and connect with employees and consumers.


You can empower and inspire employees, partners, and customers to partner with you in supporting our holiday gift program! 


In purchasing Compassion Cards, your employees can participate without taking on the complexity of donation processing and purchasing and wrapping specific gifts.

To Individual/Family donors:


Challenge your parents, siblings, children, relatives, neighbours, and the local business community to get involved in our holiday gift program. 


They will be inspired! And smile knowing that your generosity has helped a Halton family in need and brightened the holidays for them!
