A Catalogue of Ways to Help Refugee Children and Adults

From small to large ways, we support refugee families as they journey through the early days and months of their life in Canada. The items below represent specific ways that we support refugee families. Your donation will result in stronger, better equipped families.

Personal Care Kit for Refugee Families

Personal Care Kits

  • Every family arriving at Christie receives a kit filled with personal care items

Newborn Baby Baskets

  • We give each new mom a baby bathtub overflowing with supplies

Grocery Gift Cards

  • Grocery gift cards provide a little extra support to families who move out of Christie shelter

Winter Coat & Boots

  • Many refugee families arrive without the warm outerwear needed to brave Canadian winters

Warm Bedding & Linens

  • We offer a warm welcome to refugee families as they arrive by giving them a brand new set of linens

Dining Room Renovation

  • Our current dining space is too small to accommodate all the families staying at Christie shelter

The items in this catalogue are examples of the range of supports we offer refugee families. All funds raised, with the exception of the Social Space / Dining Room project, will be focused where they are most needed, to ensure that the best level of care is provided to our community.
