Barrie & District Christmas Cheer

Christmas Cheer assures the community they will be there for them for Christmas 2021!

With the continuation of COVID-19, Christmas Cheer has maintained the necessary changes to their campaign in order to continue supporting nearly 1,800 families in our community.

Christmas Cheer will only be accepting financial donations this year and wishes to still reach their $250,000 goal. Although typically financial donations only account for one forth of the value of what is donated to families, some local suppliers have graciously offered to afford Christmas Cheer with significant value per dollar donated.

Similarly to last year and in continued collaboration with the local Public Health Unit, additional changes to the Christmas Cheer campaign for 2021 will include:

  1. The continue use of the online applications system
  2. No physical donations of any kind will be accepted (this includes, food, toys, toiletries, gift cards, handmade items or clothing)
  3. No volunteer opportunities will be available to the public
  4. Launch of a new gift card program for all recipients of Christmas Cheer
  5. Online platform for those wanting to host a virtual fundraiser for the agency
