About the Program

Make your holiday gift donation count! Neighbourhood Network’s Holiday Gift Drive matches your gift donations with specific requests from our non-profit partners, based on their most urgent needs.

What Are the Goals?

  • To collect and distribute holiday gifts to charitable organizations in need.
  • To ensure your gift donation goes into the hands of those who need it most.
  • To encourage generosity throughout the holiday season.
  • To provide opportunities for students, families, and businesses to give back.

How Does the Program Work?

We will be accepting donations November 1st - December 22nd. Please contact: [email protected] for further information on how to recieve or give donations.
