Home of Grace Christmas
Give the gift of HOPE this holiday
A simple way to find something with real meaning and impact
As you look through your holiday gift list, consider these Home of Grace gift ideas that will have a life-changing impact.
We even have something to give as a stocking stuffer or teacher gift.
Are you part of an office or other group looking for an alternative to a gift exchange? We have the answer! Pool your resources for even greater impact.
Welcome a New Child to Safety
Home of Grace recently welcomed new children, girls rescued from dangerous and abusive situations, referred by the Children’s Department. Staff are happy to offer these children a safe haven, but there are added expenses, such as initial medical care, transportation to and from appointments, trauma counselling, in addition to ongoing costs, such as food and education. Your gift of $100 welcomes a new child to a life of health and safety.
Group gift idea: $500 will care for a new child and enroll them in school for a month.
New Bedding for a Child
A warm, safe and comfortable place for a child to sleep is something we often take for granted here. New bedding is an important part of providing a safe and comforting environment to a child and encouraging mental health. A new mattress, pillow, a thick warm blanket and sheets go a long way to putting a smile on a child’s face and letting them know that they are ‘home’. Your gift of $175 provides new bedding to let a child have a sound sleep.
Teach a new life skill
Staff are excited to be starting a pilot sewing project that will teach the girls skills that will give them a way to support themselves once they leave Home of Grace. They will learn to design, make and sell their products to the community. Your gift of $60 will go towards buying equipment, material, and help pay the sewing teacher.
Group gift idea: $400 will buy the first sewing machine.
Support families in the community
Frequently, staff hear about a family that is struggling to make ends meet. It may be the death of the main wage earner, a serious illness or a family that is short on tuition money for a promising child in the family. Home of Grace can help out a family with short-term relief, making a difference to the whole community. Your gift of $35 will go toward visiting a family in crisis and helping them out with a small gift of basic food supplies.
Sports equipment, books and toys
Help a child have a normal life through play. Play builds social skills, keeps a child active and healthy and even builds creativity. Whether it’s a puzzle, new bedtime reading book, badminton set or a soccer ball, your gift is guaranteed to put a smile on a child’s face. Your gift of $20 will pay for toys, books and sports equipment for the children.
