Despite the barriers presented by another difficult year of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to echo the spirit of our community members and face our organizational challenges with a sense of resiliency and positivity.
This holiday season, we're inviting you to celebrate our community! We want to shine a light on the many achievements our organization and our clients shared this year and acknowledge our outstanding supporters who have made them possible.
A Cause for Celebration, Celebration for a Cause
This year, we have a lot to celebrate, like...
The recognition of our 50th anniversary! Since 1971, Boyle Street Community Services has been a pillar in Edmonton. With our anniversary came the emergence of a clear mission to end chronic homelessness and a vision to drive our goal forward. Learn more about our 50th anniversary.
New and innovative programming to fill gaps in services for people experiencing homelessness in Edmonton, including the creation of a brand-new housing facility specific to our underserved female-identifying folks, called Sakihta Kikinaw. Learn more about Sakihta Kikinaw.
Numerous partnerships were built with local businesses, helping us establish an even stronger sense of community with our neighbours. We've created a series of educational presentations designed to help the public better understand the complexities of poverty and the challenges our clients face. Learn more about Educational Opportunities.
... and so much more!
Holiday Giving Opportunities
By making a financial contribution to our organization, you are helping to ensure we can continue providing innovative and effective services to those experiencing homelessness and poverty in Edmonton.
Sponsor a Holiday Meal
Community is at the heart of everything we do at Boyle Street. Meal sponsorship is our first connection with many of those we serve. It's not just a hot meal, but the safety and security of our drop-in that you are providing. Providing them with the space to take the first step in their journey and the opportunity for our staff to walk alongside them.
Host Your Own Fundraiser
By hosting a fundraiser and activating your friends, family and neighbours you are honouring our values as you support our organization and those we serve.
Without the support of people like you, we wouldn't be able to have so many reasons to celebrate. Thank you!
As the holiday season quickly approaches, we invite you to learn more about how you can continue to support our community through Holiday Giving opportunities, including holiday meal sponsorship, hosting your own fundraiser, and monetary gifting.
There are many ways you can care for our community. Though this holiday season may look different than years past, the following are a few ways that you can make an impact as an individual, family, or cohort group.
Celebrate our Community. Donate Today.
Donate. This year has been extremely difficult for everyone, and our clients feel it keenly. We remain committed to keeping our doors open but we can’t do it without your help.
