Holiday Assistance Program


Our Holiday Assistance Program 2017 is in full effect and we are now looking for donors to help. This year, we are anticipating over 100 families to register and wish to ensure that all will be accommodated. Help your Ancaster neighbours have a happy and peaceful holiday season by donating. Some of the many ways you can help include bringing in: unwrapped toys & games, winter clothing, kitchen accessories, food gift cards, non-perishable food items (pasta, canned goods, etc.), cleaning products, toiletries, and monetary donations (goes directly to families).

Another way you can help is by supporting a family through our Ornament Tree program. We will have a tree in the ACS lobby with ornaments that reflect our registered families needs. If you would like to participate, stop by our office starting the week of November 13th and pick up an ornament to help a family in need this year. Please bring any donations in as early as possible. Hamper distribution begins December 14th, and we would like to have all donations in before we begin distributing. For further information or to register for the program, call the ACS office at 905-648-6675.
