Be a light for someone this holiday season!
Our Shining Star campaign is a great way for businesses and organizations to get involved and give back by displaying our paper stars on their storefronts, windows, doors and in prominent areas as a symbol in our community; we all deserve a little joy.
Shining Stars are purchased for $2, you collect toonies from the public during the holiday season and then we pick the collection! Display our festive donation jar on your counter to encourage customers and employees to join the campaign. Donate in honour of someone, show your children what it means to give and know that you will make a difference in the life of someone this Christmas.
Send us photos of your team, customers or family participating so we can share them socially!
If we all give a little, no one has to give a lot.

Other Ways to Give:
When you include Giving in your “Holiday Traditions”, you have the ability to make a difference in someone’s life. Imagine the joy you will Feel!
Feel Joy when thoughtfully presenting a Gift of Honour, a remarkable way to say thank you to a favourite teacher, boss, relative or that “hard to get for” person on your list while making a difference to families in need. Personalized messages in festive formats are available upon request, along with tax receipts to those giving or those being honoured.
In your heart, Feel Joy when remembering a special person through a Memorial Gift. If you wish, we will notify someone of your thoughts and generosity when provided with their full name and address. Personalized messages for a card are welcomed.
The “Secret Santas” at your Employers Holiday Party, will Feel Joy when giving a small gift: NEW warm winter accessories - hats, mitts, gloves, socks, slippers, toiletries, stocking stuffers - or cash donations that will ensure vital programs to be donated to Community Care under your company name.
“Girlfriend Get Togethers” always Feel Joy after shopping for women and children who may not experience the wonderfulness of the season. Small unwrapped gifts or monetary contributions (which we will use towards their dinner) will brighten holidays.
Have a Feel Joy Open House! Please consider requesting non-perishable food or toiletries in lieu of a hostess gift. Donations will assist the over 8,000 households - 53% are children - who we predict will be registered at Community Care in the next year.
Feel Joy during “Dress Down Days”, knowing that your donations are directed towards essential services, including vision, dental and medical prescriptions which our clients may otherwise have to do without. “Pay the rent or the medical expense?”
Invite Family, Friends and Fellow Colleagues to Feel Joy along with you through your Facebook, Twitter or email. Don’t forget to send our Joyful ecards to someone special when making donations online.
Create a Food, New Winter Accessories, Toy, and/or Toiletry Collection Drive on behalf of Community Care in your apartment building, residence or company. Community Care will drop off and pick up barrels labeled with specific requests. Everyone will Feel Joy!
P.S. We would love to hear your ideas to share with others!
