This year, we celebrate our 125th anniversary of serving this community as your Children’s Aid Society. We’re asking for your help with the Tree of Hope – our annual Holiday Appeal that helps 900 of the kids we serve. Our Agency has been running holiday appeals for more than a hundred years. Last year, the Tree of Hope helped almost 900 kids from across Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington with toys, clothing, baby gear and more. We raised a record $70,000. And with that money we made a major investment in kids.
The holiday season is a time for celebration. For some it is about faith. For others, it is family, friends or colleagues. But for the families we serve, it is different. When you’re buying toys for your kids, they’re looking at empty stockings. When you’re preparing a feast, they’re worried they won’t have enough to eat. When you’re giving thanks for everything you have, they’re wondering how they will cope.
You can make an online donation and receive an instant charitable tax receipt.

The Tree of Hope is gearing up for 2019. We're looking for Sponsors and Groups/Businesses who want to make large donations. Does that interest you? Then leave us a message below.
Tell us about who you are and how you can help.
We take the privacy of the children and families we serve very seriously. We cannot identify any of the children or families that benefit from the Tree of Hope. This also makes it difficult for us to honour requests for feedback from kids who received your donations of toys. Thank you for understanding. The money we raise from the Tree of Hope will go towards buying toys, cribs, and other items our families need over the holiday season and to manage the campaign. Any money left over will be sent to our Summer Camp program, which sends some of the same kids helped by the Tree of Hope to summer camps across our two counties. We will issue tax receipts for donations of over $20.00. You can expect these receipts to arrive in February. For gifts given online, charitable tax receipts will be issued by email.
