HOMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS

We all would like to be “home” for the holidays but realise this is not always a reality for many around the globe. Take time together as a group or family and build a gingerbread house. Our “homes for the holiday” booklet provides you with conversation starters about the shelter needs of those we serve and how having a safe shelter, anytime of the year is a gift. Additionally, this activity offers simple suggestions on how you can raise money with your creation and help support our shelter projects.
