Thank you for supporting Anova!



Festive season is a time for giving – and also a time for giving back! Your support is not just about dollars and cents and it’s much more than presents under the tree. It’s about human dignity. It’s shelter, nourishment, and safety. Thank you for bringing the magic of the festive season to survivors of gender-based violence in our community.

Through a variety of different giving options, you can help families come together and enjoy the magic of the festive season in a way that is most meaningful to you.

Holiday Gifts
If you wish to donate a holiday gift, please refer to our Festive Wish List for inspiration and ideas. Holiday Gifts must be dropped off at our Donation Centre on or before Saturday, December 18th. Extended holiday hours will be provided in the near future.

Gift Cards
Every year, women and children are free to select the donated gifts they want their family members to receive. The conditions created by COVID-19 are taking away that choice. We are asking members of our community to donate gift cards. We are asking you to GIVE THE GIFT OF CHOICE.

Gift cards empower survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Not only do donated gift cards give self-agency and choice but they also give the gift of experiences such as a day at the movies and the gift of financial empowerment to those who do not have the privilege to purchase experiences or gifts themselves.
