Join us in demonstrating the meaning of Christmas through giving.


Every December, we decorate our Good Food Centre into a holiday room with fresh food and toys to share the joy of the season with all families in Hamilton. We call it Christmas Care because it's about showing what the season means to us and our many donors - giving compassionate, dignified care for every person who comes through our doors. During this season, we gather a number of items to help make the holidays special for our Hamilton neighbours with limited resources. We offer Christmas hampers, a gift room, Sponsor-a-Family (for Inasmuch House guests), and holiday meals. To give a holiday meal, donate here.

Thanks to donors and volunteers in the community like you all over Greater Hamilton, we serve over 1,000 families during the holiday season, including more than 1,500 children. Every child receives a new toy and young adults receive a gift card to buy something of their own. If you would like to host a gift and/or food drive, please contact or 905-528-4211 ext. 3102


Children who are staying at Inasmuch House, our shelter for women and children fleeing domestic abuse or violence, also receive toys, stockings made by our shelter staff, and a sumptuous turkey dinner. Sign up to participate in the Sponsor-a-Family Program.
