Donate to Holiday Heroes 2019 in Support of Anova!!

Become a HERO today!!! Help us raise funds for this year’s Holiday Heroes, all in support of Anova (formerly Women’s Community House & Sexual Assault Centre London)!!

The greatest gift of the season is supporting families in need and this year Anova has set up a tree on the front lawn of their Wellington Road shelter and need your help decorating it with white lights. All it takes is a simple $25 donation for one light on that tree to help make the Season bright at both of our shelters. Anova will use your gift to make sure Christmas is a special time for kids who have had everything else in their world turned upside down.

In return, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped bring good memories to children. Holiday Heroes is not just about dollars and cents and it’s much more than presents under the tree. Women and children aren’t here because they want to be. We are their last resort. Holiday Heroes is about human dignity for 67 families, a roof over their heads, food to eat and safety from fear.

Help put a smile on a child’s face and be their hero! Open up your heart this holiday season and show your care by donating.  You can also donate items needed on their Wish List below:
