YWCA Lethbridge & District’s annual “Stockings of Hope” campaign is now underway.

“Stockings of Hope” is a gifting campaign that brings the joys of the season and hopes for the future to women and children most in need.
These are families who are currently using YWCA programs & resources or who have used these resources in the past year. Recipients are prioritized based on need.
Stockings are hung on the fireplace in the YWCA lobby. Included on each stocking is  a wish-list for a particular woman, as well as information (gender, age, size) for any of her children who may be with her.  
There are also stockings for the YWCA’s “critical needs” – items used by the agency’s clients throughout the year.
Residents and businesses can stop by the YWCA to “adopt” a stocking. They purchase some or all of the gifts on the wish-list, and then return the gifts – unwrapped – to the YWCA by Dec.15.
