Holiday Helpers Donation Drive
Get involved & Give back to the Community!

The ARIDO GTA Chapter is encouraging members to get into the holiday spirit a bit early this year by planning to take part in the Holiday Helpers Donation Drive with their colleagues.

What exactly is Holiday Helpers?
Holiday Helpers logo
It is a registered charity that helps to provide a one-time personalized Christmas package to low income families with young children who are trying to improve their circumstances.
How does your team start their Holiday Helpers Donation Drive?
Register your group donation drive at Holiday Helpers.
Rally your colleagues to collect un-used items that will be added to the Christmas packages distributed among the families in need.
Please note they love specialized drives like "Diaper and Baby Drives" or "Pre-teen and Teen Drives."
Once the items are collected by your team, they will need to be dropped off at one of the two specified drop-off locations in North Toronto or Mississauga between December 4th and 6th. These locations will be announced in November.
Please note that since they are a small charity Holiday Helpers are not able to pick-up packages. Should your team not be able to meet the drop-off deadline please email
Or if you and your team is feeling extra generous, then consider sponsoring a family! There are many ways to assist families from donating towards a family’s Christmas tree, dinner, holiday decorations and much more! To find out more about this, check out Sponsor a Family.
