Give Me Shelter Logo

Each year, thousands of women and children flee domestic violence to find shelter at one of the Edmonton and area Women’s Shelters. Many women leave quickly with their children taking nothing more than the clothes on their backs in a desperate attempt to get away. Having somewhere safe to stay is vital to these families.

No one should be forgotten during the holidays.

For 17 years, thanks to the generous support of our community, the Global News Give Me Shelter campaign has provided thousands of much-needed items and Christmas gifts for women and children who are the victims of violence in our community, as well as thousands of dollars in donations.

This year, the need is greater than ever.  Edmonton and area women’s shelters desperately need your support. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, ONLY Gift Cards and Online Cash Donations can be accepted for this year’s Global News Give Me Shelter campaign. This allows each of the shelters to purchase whatever they need to help to make the holidays a bit brighter for women and children seeking refuge. Donations will be accepted until December 18th.

Please continue to show you care by making a donation and stand up for the women and children who are escaping family violence during the holidays, and every day.

If you prefer to donate Gift Card(s), Global Edmonton has set up a donation box in the front entrance of our Global Edmonton Studios, 5325 Allard Way, to safely drop off Gift Cards only.
