Provide Christmas for a Family in Need

Each year, the YWCA Lethbridge "Stockings of Hope" campaign helps women in need (and their families) experience the joy of the Christmas season. These women are either currently using YWCA programs and services or have used them over the past year.

Each stocking includes a wish-list for a particular woman and her children (if applicable). We prioritize recipients based on need. Some of the stockings are our wish list. These are critical need items used by our clients throughout the year.
No matter which type of stocking you choose to fill, you’ll be providing much needed help to someone in need. Thank you for your support!

How to Participate

Step 1:

Visit YWCA Lethbridge at 604 8th Street South and choose a stocking from our fireplace.

Step 2:

Sign your stocking out at the reception desk.

Step 3:

Shop for some or all of the items on the wish list provided. Feel free to include gift wrapping supplies too!

Step 4:

Return your stockings & unwrapped gifts to YWCA Lethbridge by December 17th, 2018.


Please ensure gifts are non-violent in nature (no toy knives, toy guns, GI Joe’s, boxing gloves, etc.)

Please return your gifts unwrapped. (But we’d love it if you provide wrapping paper!)

Please mark each bag or item with the code that was provided to you on your stocking so we can ensure the gifts are distributed to the correct family.
