Donate Christmas Items

Thank you so much for caring about the young people at Covenant House!

As part of our ongoing efforts to protect our youth's health and safety, volunteers and visitors will not be able to visit Covenant House for the remainder of 2020.

To make the holidays enjoyable for the youth, we are requesting donations of gift cards and pre-paid Presto cards only. In addition to a special Christmas breakfast and dinner and some fun activities around the house, each young person will receive an envelope containing the donated gift cards.

In the past, gift cards have been a favourite present for the youth. They allow them some choice in purchasing products they enjoy or having a meal in the community.

If you would be so generous to provide any of the items below, you will brighten Christmas Day for the young people who count on us.

List of applicable gift donations

  • Gift cards in $5, $10, $20, and $25 denominations
  • Pre-Paid Presto Cards

Gift card ideas:

  • Fast food restaurants (i.e. Subway, McDonald's, Swiss Chalet, Harvey's, etc.)
  • Retailers (i.e. Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, Indigo, Winners, Marshalls, Sport Chek, etc.)

If you or your organization would like to help provide gift cards for our youth this Christmas, please fill out this gift card donation form.

Note: Please ensure amounts are printed on the cards so we can equally distribute them.

We appreciate your support and well wishes—they mean so much to our youth and staff. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts.
