There are lots of ways you can be a part of our work here at SouthWest, no matter what your age! For our upcoming Christmas party, we are looking for adults to volunteer their time on the day (Dec. 2nd) or before; we're also asking kids to look through their toy boxes or shelves and see if they have things they don't play with anymore that another child might enjoy. Some of the things we are collecting to fill Christmas stockings are:
Coloring books and crayons, Hot wheels, My Little Pony, Slinkie, Small hand-held games, Stuffies, Small bags of candy, chips, popcorn, coloured fun shoe laces, gloves, mitts, Something with a Canadian flag to support Olympics in 2018, jewellery/ kids make up, animal figurines, action figurines, Barbies, Play in the snow items... Use your imagination!
Items can be dropped off at the Mission during office hours, 9AM-2 PM weekdays.
Of course, we do accept donations of money as well! If you send a cheque, please specify it is to be used for Christmas activities. Tax receipts for all amounts of $25 or more.
To reserve a space for your child(ren) at the party, please call the office, 514-768-6231.
