Richmond Christmas Fund

Because we're here...everyone can share in the holiday spirit.

At Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives, we understand that not everyone is fortunate. Many families in Richmond live with only the barest of necessities. During the holiday season, financial pressures are particularly tough.

Our Richmond Christmas Fund program mobilizes the community’s spirit of giving, through monetary donations and donations of new toys and other gifts for needy families.

Each year, the Fund distributes grocery vouchers to low-income Richmond residents so that every family has the opportunity to sit down to a joyful holiday celebration.

More than 750 children 17 years and younger receive numerous gifts, ensuring that no child returns to school in January without a wonderful story to tell.

This program would not be possible without the 180+ volunteers who contribute their time each year to help with registration, toy distribution, data entry and fundraising events. If you’d like to help the Richmond Christmas Fund in some way, please call 604-279-7020 or e-mail
