You Help Make a Difference 

Every year Options brightens the holiday season for over 80 families in the Surrey area with the support of generous Hamper Sponsors like you!  This year was no exception with 178 children being sponsored!  We had a tremendous response and we want to sincerely thank everyone that participated; we couldn't have done it without you. 

Now that the holiday season is over and we have moved into a new year it is easy to forget about those in our community that are still struggling.  Options is committed to empowering individuals, supporting families and promoting community health.  We would love for you continue your care and support!
