Families are as strong as their community. The Gift of Christmas is an opportunity to help support a community during this Advent season.
The Gift of Christmas gathers families together for a meal, a time of friendship, and the opportunity for each child to continue participating in the Kids in Community (KIC) after school program. KIC is a means for us to build relationships with children and their families through songs, games, Bible time, and homework help.
This Christmas, as you spend time with friends and family, please consider a financial gift in partnership with Toronto City Mission to bring hope and transformation to kids throughout the year and for years to come
Watch Jenieve's story below:
Jenieve came to Canada when she was 6 years old with a strong Patois accent. Shocked by her new surroundings, she began attending Toronto City Mission’s KIC program in Willowtree as she adjusted to her new life in Canada. She made new friends, learned about God, learned how to cook, and built long lasting relationships. Now 16, Jenieve has the opportunity to be a role model and serve her community as a Teens Leading Community (TLC). She hopes that other kids get the same opportunities to build
relationships and know the transformative powers that God can have in your life.
Our goal is to raise $103,400, to send kids to KIC for the school year.
$140 one time gift will send one kid to KIC for one month and give them the Gift of Christmas
$97.82 monthly gift will send one kid to KIC for one school year and give them the Gift of Christmas
Will you give the Gift of Christmas and give kids the opportunity to be transformed by God?
Please consider a financial gift in partnership with Toronto City Mission to gather families together for a meal, a time of friendship, and the opportunity for each child to continue participating in Kids in Community (KIC). KIC is an after-school program offered in four communities in Toronto designed for kids in grades 1 to 6 to spend their time in a safe environment engaged in positive activities. We build relationships with the kids through songs, games, Bible time, and homework help. Following KIC, Youth Extreme (YX) and Teens Leading Communities (TLC) teach kids the importance of being good role models and giving back to their communities.
