Help Someone In Need This Holiday Season

As it gets dark, cold and wet, Cool Aid is working hard to provide warm shelter, hot meals, and compassionate care to our hurting and homeless neighbours.

This holiday you can make a difference in the life of someone in need by providing a nutritious Christmas dinner for just $5.28.

Your gift will be used to serve a community holiday meal at our Downtown Community Centre in December. Or you can choose to help provide the generous gift of dental care, housing, employment services, or health and rehabilitation programs.

  • $32.96 to provide health and rehab support
  • $75.00 to provide a dental clinic visit
  • $95.03 to provide a home starter kit for a person leaving homelessness
  • $250.00 to provide employment and support services for one month



100% of your generous donation today will go to our programs!

Thanks to a generous business partner who will be covering the costs of fundraising through email, 100% of every donation made online from now until December 31 will go directly to helping people in need.


Cool Aid’s Food Services

Food is something most of us are lucky enough to take for granted, even when grocery prices go up and stretch our pocketbooks as they have in the last few years. Although food is a basic human right, many people go hungry – even in Victoria.

This year, Cool Aid will provide almost 1,000 nutritious meals daily for clients at our shelters, seniors in supportive housing, and participants in some of the healthy living programs at the Downtown Community Centre, plus thousands of nutritious snacks.
