CAWES 2022 Christmas Holiday Wishlist

CAWES 2022 Christmas Holiday Wishlist

At CAWES, we are fortunate to see firsthand the generosity that defines the holiday season... the Central Alberta Community all coming together to ensure that those less fortunate are able to celebrate the holidays with joy and hope, with supportive people around them. Every year, we are reminded of the strength this support lends to the women and children we serve.

Please take a moment to remember the hundreds of Central Alberta families whose homes have been destroyed by the devastating effects of family violence. Your support is very appreciated in ensuring that the women and children staying at CAWES have a holiday filled with laughter and magic.

Gift Cards
The donation of gift cards this holiday season will give women the opportunity to personally shop for Christmas/Holiday gifts for their children. This simple act will give our clients a sense of normalcy and empowerment during the holiday season. Gift cards to shopping malls, department stores, and big box stores (i.e. Walmart) provide lots of choices and versatility for gift buying.

To donate, or for more information, please contact the Central Alberta Women's Emergency Shelter at 403-346-5643 or generalinfo@cawes.com. Please allow up to 48 hours for a member of our team to respond to messages. Unless otherwise stated donations can be dropped off on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm.

Thank you from all of us at CAWES.
