“The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us.” ~ Anonymous

This holiday season – SAA is proud to join hands with Friends with Dignity, in supporting adults and children impacted by Domestic Violence.

In collaboration with refuge and crisis centres, Friends with Dignity is a national, volunteer based, not-for-profit registered charity, which provides tangible resources, practical programs and scholarships to enhance the personal safety of individuals – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or sexuality. 

Throughout the year, Friends with Dignity assists survivors of domestic violence to re-build their lives with purpose, dignity and hope.

Between November 7 and December 14, SAA is excited to be counted amongst Santa’s helpers – in supporting Friends with Dignity and its Gifts for Friends Christmas Collection Drive. 

Tracey Wickham, National Fundraising and Community Engagement Manager at Friends with Dignity, shares the following, “Bringing a smile to a child’s face is one of the special things we do at Christmas time. Unfortunately, there are many within our community who do not have the ability to buy a gift for their children.”

SAA is committed to spreading many smiles this Christmas, and helping Friends with Dignity reach its target of 80 toys for children in need.

“It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.” ~ William Thomas Ellis
