From November 16 until December 23, we encourage Calgarians to participate virtually by making a toy donation via CTV Calgary’s donation portal here. Your donation supports those in need during this holiday season, and year round. The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter is a 50-bed emergency shelter, which houses women and children experiencing family violence and abuse, providing a safe haven from violence.
Please note, Mayfair clinics will not be accepting donations in person due to the current pandemic. In-person donations will be accepted at:
This annual campaign supports the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter, which is focused on ending family violence and abuse in the lives of women, children, youth and men. Though the emergency shelter is the cornerstone of their organization, it is “more than a shelter” – it serves families in the community through a number of innovative safety, healing and prevention programs. By supporting this campaign, it is our hope to help raise awareness around domestic violence and abuse. We also hope to share information about the great work the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter is doing to help our local communities.
