Sadly Winnipeg has the highest child-poverty rate in Canada. We believe that even the smallest effort to help a child is beneficial and we prefer to focus on Winnipeg children.
The concept is simple, affordable and can easily be turned into a great family experience.
On Sunday November 26 between 12:30 to 3:00, we will be gathering at 4-580 Pembina Hwy to assemble boxes for distribution.

We are thrilled to have teamed with the resource centre at Thrive. They work right here in the West End with high need families. 100% of all donations goes directly into Thrive’s programs and the community.
They will be hosting a family dinner and the boxes will be added to the gifts given to the children. There is much need and donations of all types are welcome. Feel free to be as generous as you please.
