How You Can Help


We welcome volunteers of all ages throughout the year. Your support and expertise help make our events a success, and help make a difference in the lives of local families in need.

We accept monetary donations throughout the year, as well as prize donations for our various events. An income tax receipt will be provided for donations upon request.

Payroll Deductions
A donation can be automatically deducted from your pay. Contact the United Way at 416-777-2001 in Toronto, 905-436-7377 in Oshawa and Whitby and 905-686-0606 in Ajax. OPG employees can have contributions deducted directly from their pay through their payroll deduction program.

Corporate Sponsorship
Is your company looking for a way to give back to our community? Why not become a corporate sponsor? Partner with us in fundraising initiatives, for example our "Annual Fundraiser Dance" or host an event such as a Golf Tournament.

Company Charity Pool
Does your company have a company pool or "dress down day", where they donate to a local charity? Consider "For the Love of a Child" as your company's charity of choice.

Funding is based on the number of applicants and at the discretion of the Board.
