Give A Gift That Matters This Holiday Season
It is getting to that busy time of year at 360°kids, as our dedicated team of volunteers, staff and our donors work hard to ensure kids in our care are gifted with the ability to enjoy the spirit of the season. Would you like to bring holiday cheer to the youth in our care?

Give a Good Start
Many youth who transition out of our homes and apartments begin their journey with limited essentials which you can so generously donate.
A Good Start Gift valued at approximately $250.00 can be created to include essentials, such as: grocery gift cards, linens, dishes, cutlery, and basic essentials to start them off on the path to success.
Adopt a Youth
360°kids has over 50 youth living with us in our housing programs at any given time. You, your family or your organization can “adopt” one or more of our clients by providing a holiday gift for them. Many of our youth do not have connections with their families and the holiday season can be a very lonely time for them. Your gift will let them know they matter.
Sponsor a Holiday Dinner
Feed the soul with a holiday meal.
For a $1000.00 donation you can sponsor a holiday feast for all of our youth at either of our Home Base Drop-in centres in Vaughan (150-175 youth) or Richmond Hill (125-150 youth).
For a $300.00 donation, you can sponsor a holiday celebration at one of our 6 YOUTHrive afterschool programs.
For a $200.00 donation you can sponsor our youth residential homes holiday dinner.

Host your own drive. Keeping all of our youth at our homes and youth drop-in centres fed is a big job and an even bigger expense. Easily prepped, non-perishable meals make all the difference, such as,: cereal, tuna, macaroni and cheese, etc.
Host a Toiletry Drive
Host your own drive. Keeping all of our youth at our homes and youth drop-in centres fed is a big job and an even bigger expense.
