Thank you for thinking of the families at WINGS
this Holiday Season!

At WINGS, we continue to provide a warm, supportive home, counseling and life skills programs, to women and their children who are escaping abusive situations. Volunteer and fundraising events have been restricted during Covid-19, however, there are creative and meaningful ways you can help.

Please note we are not accepting gently used items at this time, e.g. clothing, toiletries, furniture, et al. Please check back in the New Year.

Thank you for your support!

Donate Holiday Gifts

We work to brighten the season by providing WINGS families with gifts to let them know they are loved and supported - most importantly, that the community is thinking about them! This year we are requesting:
  • GIFT CARDS - Walmart, All Grocery Stores (Sobeys is within walking distance), Shoppers Drug Mart, McDonalds, Tim Hortons, Boston Pizza, A&W, Amazon, Google Play, Amazon, Clothing Stores - Old Navy, Garage, Dynamite, Southgate Mall etc.
  • Toys for kids (all ages)
  • Gifts for Moms
Christmas gifts should be delivered by: December 7th (items must be quarantined at WINGS for 10 days).

Sponsor a Family at our Home Next Door

Contact if you’re interested in being paired with a Home Next Door family to sponsor for Christmas. Sponsors will be provided a Wish List from the family as a general outline - remember this is a wish list and not a shopping list! Families are always greatly appreciative of the gifts they receive and overwhelmed that so many people in the community are thinking of them over the holiday season. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, sponsors will not be able to deliver gifts directly to the families; they will have to be dropped off at WINGS office. Thank you.

Buy a Grocery Gift Card or Help us Stock our Food Pantry

Poverty and food security is a major obstacle for our families. Grocery Gift Cards including Walmart, Sobeys (Sobeys is within walking distance to WINGS), Superstore, Coop, Safeway etc. are provided to the families throughout the whole year and especially during the holiday season. Gift Cards can be mailed or delivered to WINGS office.

Help us to purchase our most needed food items without leaving your home. WINGS has partnered with Pratts Foods so that specialized, Canada Food Guide approved nutritious meals and snacks needed for our daycare, children’s programs, special family events, and food emergencies can be purchased in the most cost and time effective manner. Donate toward food supplies to help families during the holidays and throughout the year.

Sponsor a Child

Help make a difference in a child’s life! The Rocky Forest Daycare and Out of School Care, which is located onsite at the Home Next Door is fully licensed and accredited to provide the highest quality care.

At the Rocky Forest Daycare, the children are provided specialized trauma informed early education programs to support them in their growth and development in all areas. It is a Reggio Emilia-inspired, child-centered and child-focused daycare. Early learning programs are carefully planned to tap into children’s expressed interests and fully engage their imaginations. Children have healthy snacks and hot lunches, and a lovely outdoor play space accessible year-round, providing plenty of fresh air and physical activity.

Although we are helping families to achieve their goals, we need your help to continue to operate the Rocky Forest Daycare and Out of School Care.

Would you consider sponsoring a child?
