White Cross Christmas Campaign

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

The Christmas Campaign is an extension of the White Cross Program which provides social recreational activities for people 18 years and older who experience mental or emotional health problems.  Members of White Cross often find that their opportunities for socialization are limited, hence the reason for the program.  Feelings of isolation can be exasperated during the holidays. White Cross volunteers actively seek donations to include in gift packages to members who might not have a network of friends and family to gather with over the holidays, and/or the financial resources to invest in small necessities and luxuries.  These small gifts and acts of kindness go a long way in ensuring the recipients feel valued and maintain good spirits during a time which can be particularly hard for some.

In 2016 the Christmas Campaign resulted in over 800 gifts being distributed to individuals from across the province.
