Christmas Support Programs

Local agencies work together to ensure needs of everyone in our community are met over the Christmas season. If you would like information on available support programs, see the information below.

Emergency Assistance Program

The Okotoks Family Resource Centre recognizes that families may need help the other 364 days of the year, and runs programs to subsidize recreation fees, provide emergency gas or grocery cards, and help with back to school supplies. Consider making a tax-deductible donation to help fund these programs during 2017.
