Christmas Sharing 2015

Adopt a family in our Christmas Sharing Program

Every year during the holiday season, Moorelands offers a uniquely personalized way for you to reach out to Toronto families in need. Our Christmas Sharing Program links a family, firm or group with a family or families to be ‘adopted’. Through your sponsorship or “adoption”, Moorelands provides holiday gifts to low-income, Toronto families whose children attend our programs and are struggling to make ends meet. We provide you with gift-giving guidelines, information about the number of people in the family, the children’s ages & favourites (e.g. colours, music, authors, games) to ensure that gifts will be useful and cherished. You and your family or group members go shopping and deliver the gifts to Moorelands. We then organize times/dates for the families to pick up their gifts.
For more information, please take a look at our Christmas Sharing Brochure:

For volunteer opportunities, or for any other inquiries, please contact the Christmas Sharing Team at 416-466-9987 ext. 300 or email: christmas(at)
