Adopt A Family

Every year the Medicine Hat Women’s Shelter Society runs our Adopt-a-Family Program to help provide Christmas gifts to those impacted by family violence who are accessing our supports and services. Over the past 20 years this program has grown from a small number of families to over 100 families seeking help each year.

    Want to help ensure our families don’t go without for Christmas?

  • Donate new toys, gifts (for all ages) or gift cards by dropping them off at Sun Valley Honda and Davis GMC Buick between November 1 and December 18, 2020. Click here for a list of gift ideas!
  • Make a financial donation towards the program. This can be done online at, e-transfer to or mailing a cheque payable to:
         Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society
         Box 2500
         Medicine Hat, AB T1A 8G8

By focusing on donations of new toys and gift cards, our aim is to empower Mom or Dad with the opportunity to be a part of choosing items that will make their child’s Christmas special. Mom or Dad will also receive a gift package and each family will receive a gift card for groceries.

The Christmas season is an especially difficult time for the families we serve. Help us make their wishes come true this coming holiday season!
