Provide Christmas for a Woman or Youth in Crisis

Each year, the YWCA Lethbridge "Stockings of Hope" campaign helps women in crisis experience the joy of the Christmas season by providing them with gifts and much-needed personal items. Last year, generous YWCA donors provided Christmas for over 180 women & their families.

Each stocking includes a personal wish-list from a woman (and her children, if she has them). These women are either currently using YWCA programs and services or have used them over the past year. We prioritize Stockings of Hope recipients based on need. We also hang stockings from the youth from our Hestia Homes program, which provides much-needed housing and support for youth who are homeless (or at risk of being homeless).

There are also a number of stockings that are our wish list. These are critical-need items required by our clients throughout the year, which we hold and distribute as needed – things like personal hygiene items or towels, pillows and blankets for women entering Harbour House, our women’s emergency shelter.
