This Holiday Season- Be a Helping Hand

Since 2007, Squamish Helping Hands Society has been supporting those most in need in our community. The holidays are a great time to both have fund and to make everyone’s life a little bit brighter. Here are some easy ways that you can lend a helping hand.


Everyone deserves a special gift to open on Christmas morning. Putting together a gift box is a fun and easy way to share your holiday spirit. Make this a team activity by getting your family, friends, workplace or school involved.

Now the fun part—shopping! Put together a box of items that you think will be appreciated (shoebox size is perfect), wrap it, label it male, female or unisex.

Drop off your shoebox gifts before December 21, 2022:

Under One Roof
37871 Third Avenue

Please note that 75% of our participants are male. Here are some suggestions for gift items:

  • Socks
  • Hats and Gloves
  • Toiletries
  • Hygiene products
  • Gift Cards
  • Scratch and Wins
  • Special treats

We have many people who are artistic. They might love items to help them express their talents- e.g. paint and brushes, journals etc.
