Charitable giving is a wonderful way to feel the spirit of Christmas and give a little joy. The Dilico Christmas Wish Campaign will help make the holidays so much brighter for children and families who sometimes find the season to be a difficult time.

What should go in a Christmas Wish bag?
Take a look at your Christmas Wish Profile. It should include the age, clothing size and interests of the child. We recommend you shop for essential items, toys or gift cards to fill the wish bag according to the Christmas Wish profile tag. The tag should highlight the child’s age, interests and clothing size.

Gift suggestions include: learning and art supplies, books, socks, tooth brush, mitts, hat, sweater.

*Please do not wrap your gifts. You are welcome to include a card with a special Christmas Wish message. We ask that you do not include candy.

What do I do if I sign up online and don’t have a Christmas Wish Bag?
Please bring your items in a shopping bag. Make sure to label your shopping bag(s) with your profile number. This can be done by writing it on a piece of paper and placing it inside the bag. You can also staple it to the bag. This is VERY important to assist the elves in getting your gift to the proper child in need.

The Dilico elves will then transfer your items into a red Christmas Wish bag for you.

Where do I drop off the items for my Christmas Wish profile?
Wish bag items can be dropped off at Dilico Heath Park Site at 1115 Yonge Street. Upon arrival please go to the “Day Treatment Entrance”, located off of Yonge Street.

Call (807) 624-5818 and let the Dilico Head Elf know you have arrived. The bag can then be brought to the door for drop off. They will check your profile number.
