New West Gives Back: Sharing Christmas Joy

Here at NWS, we believe that we are called to love the poor, the hurting, and the marginalized.

Thank YOU! We are so grateful for the enthusiastic and generous support we received in response to our request for people to donate towards our New West Gifts Back: Sharing Christmas Joy concert in December.  The concert was a highlight of our Christmas season, and our members were thrilled to be able to show love to vulnerable members of our community through our music and gift-giving.

We were able to gift tickets to more than 1000 adults and children from a wide variety of community organizations that support people experiencing homelessness, family crisis, income insecurity, as well as newcomers to Canada who have been impacted by the war in Ukraine.   We want to thank the following agencies for partnering with us to SHARE JOY with our New West Gifts Back guests:
The Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre
Sonshine Centre
Woods Homes
The Immigrant Education Society
Emma House
Inn from the Cold
The Alex Health Centre
The Dream Centre
Jesus Loves You Society
Kids Up Front
New Canadian Friendship Centre
Discovery House
