Sponsor a Family or Child
Children's Aid Society / La Société d'aide à l'enfance Nipissing Parry Sound

The Children’s Aid Society of the District of Nipissing and Parry Sound is seeking the community’s assistance to help make the Christmas season special for more than 529 local families and more than 179 children working with the Society.

Help us create Christmas Smiles by ensuring that all children and families we work with in our community have gifts under the tree on Christmas morning by sponsoring a child or adopting a family.


What is sponsoring a child?

Generous community sponsors are matched with the profile of a child in the care of the local Children’s Aid Society. Sponsors will be provided with the child’s name, age, gender, and wish list.

“One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas Day” – Andy Rooney


What is adopt-a-family?

Generous community sponsors are matched with families currently working with the local Children’s Aid Society. Sponsors will receive a wish list from the family, the ages, gender, and clothing sizes of the children. In addition to the aforementioned sponsorship programs, we gratefully accept new gifts for children and teens (aged 0-21), toiletry items, new clothing, and gift cards. We also accept cash donations, which are eligible for charitable tax receipts.


In-kind charitable tax receipts are also available. Itemized Christmas receipts must be submitted at the time of delivery in an envelope with the sponsor’s name and address written on the front. Please keep your personal shopping items separate.

If you wish to help make a difference for children and families this holiday season, please contact the Agency at 705-472-0910 or by email at

We could not make this possible without the many wonderful community members and organization who donate generously. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
