Dec 1, 2022 UPDATE:   Thank you for your interest in becoming an Adopt a Family sponsor.  We are happy to say that the sponsor program is full for 2022!

There are other ways to support our work if you are able:  we are in need of financial support to our in house Hamper program, you can click here to donate directly to the Hamper program fund.

We also need toys and gift cards for teens!  In particular, we need toys for boys and girls ages 9 to 12, see our Home page for a full wish list, a link to a great article on top toys under $25 and our blog for some great STEM toy suggestions.  Toys can be dropped off at any fire hall in Surrey or right here at our Toy Depot 10355 King George Blvd., Monday – Saturday 9:00am to 5:00pm.

Great teen gift card ideas are Guildford or Central City Mall cards, Best Buy, London Drugs, Wal Mart, Shoppers Drug Mart etc.  The ideal denominations for teen gift cards are $25 and $50. If you prefer buying items for teens, we like to match those gift cards with a little something parents can wrap and put under the tree, some ideas include blow dryers, hair straighteners, shavers, personal care items such as makeup, nail kits, etc.  Teens love to make videos so ring lights, selfie sticks, cell phone accessories, headphones, ear buds and other tech items are also very popular.



Imagine the worry that parents feel when they must choose basic necessities over a Christmas meal or special toy.
