Holiday Helpers

The holidays came with a little “help” for two deserving families this season.

On November 24th the Toronto Raptors hosted a special event in support of Holiday Helpers − a volunteer run registered charity whose mission is to provide a one-time personalized Christmas package to low income families with young children who are trying to improve their circumstances.

Interval House nominated two deserving families to attend the event – families who we knew were working hard to make things better, and deserved a little extra special gift.

The two families chosen had a great time. They met and had dinner with the Raptors and mingled with Raptors’ families. There were tons of give-aways and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the kids.

A mother and her 13 year old son sent us a lovely photo with a Raptors player and said: “Thank you very much for nominating my son and I to attend the party. We had a fantastic time!”

Another mom and her two young daughters also sent photos with a Raptors player and family members and said: “I just wanted to say thanks so much for Sunday Dinner with the Toronto Raptors. We had a wonderful evening. My daughters and I were so happy and surprised. I appreciate what you have done for us.”
