In many Aboriginal cultures, gifting is a way to show respect. The M’akola Holiday Gift Program is a way to show respect to our residents, because without them M’akola Housing would not exist.
M’akola is the largest Aboriginal affordable housing provider in BC, serving more than 5,000 family members.
Even living in affordable housing, many families struggle with the additional costs and stresses of the winter holidays. In an effort to support those families M’akola started our Holiday Gift Program.
Through donations from our friends, supporters, vendors and stakeholders can provide some help to the families living in M’akola homes across BC.
Through these donations, we can provide a variety of gift cards to our families and Elders. If you would like to pre-purchase gift certificates, such as Thrifty Foods or Walmart, please purchase them in $5 and $10 values. Any cash donation will receive a charitable tax receipt. All donations will be graciously acknowledged on our website and through social media.
Donations can be mailed to:
