This Christmas,

Adopt a Family | Adopt a Senior

Have you ever wondered about helping a less fortunate family or senior at Christmas time? There are a couple of ways your business, your family, your team, your church or school can participate in this wonderfully rewarding program.

Adopt-a-Family or Adopt-a-Senior

We will match you with a senior or a family. Tell us the size of the family you would like to be connected with and we will do our best to match you as closely as possible. We will share with you the information you need about each person in the family (ages of children, gender, clothing size, hobbies and “wish lists”). Then you:

Buy the gifts, groceries, gift cards*

Wrap the presents

Personally deliver everything to the family’s home by December 16th

*Please consider that gift cards are ideal as they give families the flexibility to create the type of Christmas they want for their family.

How much should I budget?

We recommend budgeting $100-$120 for each person in the family. Of that, we suggest half (approximately $50 or $60) should be allocated to gifts for each child or senior and the remaining allocated to food.


Make a donation of money or gift certificates directly to the Caring Neighbours Program and our volunteers will see to the rest. Any amount, big or small, will help to support families and seniors in New Westminster.

Donate now

Please note that tax receipts are automatically issued for cash donations of $20 and above. Tax receipts for donated gift cards can also be issued, but CRA requires that the original store transaction receipt MUST be provided.
