A donation makes a world of difference               

For the first time in over a hundred years, the Tree of Hope made a massive change. In 2020, the campaign shifted from collecting toys to buying gift cards.  The new approach was in response to the pandemic but something remarkable happened.  It worked better.  Families felt they had more flexibility and choice about what to buy for their children.  There were also cost savings with the streamlined logistics and there was even more time  for holiday joy!

Can you help us continue this new tradition that means so much to our parents and their children?

It's more than just gift cards. The money raised during the holiday appeal also funds programs all year long such as:

START In-school Tutoring

Posts-secondary bursaries

Summer Camp



We need your all year-round to help the kids and families we serve. 
The Tree of Hope has been helping kids and families served by our Children’s Aid Society for more than a hundred years. That help lasts all your round. The Tree of Hope supports a number of initiatives from summer camp to in-school tutoring to post-secondary bursaries.

Important Note

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.
