EFry Holidays 2022
As we approach another holiday season, we hope you will consider adding EFry to your giving list. While many unprecedented events have impacted our communities in recent times, from a pandemic to extreme weather to resource shortages, we have been heartened by the many stories of people helping each other through difficult times. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, EFry has also been able to support the record numbers of vulnerable women and children looking to us for help.
At EFry, our motto is Dignity. Equality. Opportunity. To achieve that, we combine practical supports to help the women and children who come to us for help in meeting their basic needs like food and shelter, with advocacy and innovative initiatives that drive systemic change across BC and Canada.
Your generosity helps us with both. After 10 years of planning and fundraising, EFry just opened BC’s first facility for vulnerable women and children that brings together an emergency shelter, ultra-affordable apartments, child-focused programming and access to health care. Without our early donors, this five-storey, 55,000 square foot building which provides women with one-stop access to an interconnected spectrum of supports to help women build stable futures for themselves and their children that began welcoming families this September would not have happened.
The EFry Holiday Campaign is not possible without the generosity of our incredible community of donors. Consider adopting a family or a project this year with your family, friends, team or group as a way to spread the holiday cheer! Or perhaps host a company 50/50 draw with proceeds going to EFry Holidays.
We provide gifts for over 1200 participants in our many programs. We welcome financial donations as we have the opportunity to purchase deeply discounted toys from various vendors. We also have a shortage of gifts for teens and babies, so this is the list of our most needed *new* unwrapped items:
- gift cards (multi-store, games, food, movie, large box stores, cosmetics etc)
- sports equipment
- cosmetics and beauty
- electronics (please include batteries if required)
- art supplies
