Christmas Program

Christmas Sponsorship 2017

All of us at LIFE*SPIN would like to take a moment to say THANK YOU~ to everyone who supported, donated, sponsored, volunteered, advocated, and cared. Without all of you, we could not have had the success that we did have in 2016. All of you have helped in one way or another to create a sense of community for hundreds of low-income families and individuals this year. We are astounded at the outpouring of kindness that enabled us to help 1094 families this Christmas. We will start matching sponsors for families in need in 2017 in October. Thanks to each one of you for all you do! Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year!

If you would like to sponsor a child or family in 2017, please fill out this form.

LIFE*SPIN’s Mission is to provide information and support for individuals surviving on low-incomes. We strive to support the empowerment and self-development of these individuals in their efforts to attain self-sufficiency.

For the two decades, LIFE*SPIN has facilitated a Christmas Sponsorship program that provides additional support to the poor families in our community. This program relieves poverty for low-income families with children over the Christmas season. LIFE*SPIN matches low-income families with those wishing to help a disadvantaged family celebrate Christmas. We are again offering this program and have greatly appreciated your support in past years.

Volunteers will again accept Christmas “wish lists” from the recipient family and coordinate a match with a suitable sponsor, who provides a gift for each child in the family. We ask that gifts requested be limited to roughly $35 so we can assist more children. Some sponsors provide a grocery store gift card for the family to shop together for the Christmas meal or a small gift for the parents, although these are at your discretion.

If you would like to sponsor a family this year, please contact us with your phone number. We can be reached Monday through Wednesday at 438-8676 and by appointment on Thursday & Friday. Please know that we only have two telephone lines so we appreciate detailed messages and your patience. Our fax number is 519-438-7983 if you would care to fax back the sponsorship form.

If you would like to receive a Charitable Tax receipt for the value of your purchases, please retain all your receipts and mail them to us by December 30th to P.O. Box 2801, London, ON N6A 4H4. This will ensure they don’t get misplaced when you drop off your gifts. Please note that we cannot issue the receipt for the HST portion of your donations in-kind.

Thank you for your on-going generosity and support.It is deeply appreciated!
