Merry Christmas Calgary

i Dec 25th No Comments by

THANK YOU Calgary! Once again you’ve helped us make Christmas happen for so many struggling Calgary families! We had a record number of families referred to us, and you helped us make sure they all received a bit of Christmas Magic! 

Thank you to all of our amazing donors and supporters who adopted families through our Adopt-a-Momma program, those that hosted donation drives, those that collected non-perishables for our 12 CANs till Christmas food drive, those that built holiday food hampers, and those that shopped for Santa’s Workshop wishes this year! Every donation mattered and we truly appreciate them all!

An extra-special thank you goes out to the building owner and management of our temporary “Santa’s Workshop” location – what we have come to affectionately call our “Momma Shala”. Without this space, we would not have been able to run our 2020 Christmas programs safely or effectively.

And while we certainly can’t do any of this without donations, we also owe a gigantic and heartfelt thank you to our amazing volunteers who worked tirelessly – even on Christmas Eve – to make sure every family in need was supported.

For the past 11 Christmases, we have been running our Adopt-a-Momma for Christmas and Santa’s Workshop programs. This year, on top of our regular support, we had an additional 136 families referred to Made by Momma for our 2020 Christmas Programs – and with your support, we were able to help 482 people! (173 Adults & 309 Kids) From all of us at Made by Momma, THANK YOU to every sponsor and donor who made it possible to help them have a happier holiday. We are so grateful knowing that every child we helped woke up on Christmas morning with gifts under the tree to open!

While Christmas Day may be over, our charitable work goes on for another 364 days! As a volunteer-run and donation-driven charity, financial donations fuel our work providing basic needs and essential services throughout the year.

Donations can easily be made online by completing this form,
by mailing a cheque to:
Made by Momma
66 21 Street NW
Calgary, AB T2N 4T9

or by calling our Donation Phone Line at 587.890.3869

Donation cheques dated and postmarked by December 31st can be considered for a 2020 Charitable Tax Receipt!
