The Outreach Centre is pleased to announce the launch of a Holiday Hope Campaign on November 1, 2022, with some new and returning initiatives to kick start the holiday season.

Adopt a Family
Returning this year is the Adopt a Family program, which anonymously matches sponsors with single parent families who require extra help to provide for their family. Using donated funds, The Outreach Centre provides gift cards to families in central Alberta, empowering parents and caregivers to purchase the gifts or food that they know they need for their families.

Holiday Hope Radiothon
On November 15, the first Holiday Hope Radiothon will take place on Sunny 94 FM. Sponsored by MNP and The Kinsmen Club of Red Deer, the goal of the radiothon is spread awareness and raise funds for The Outreach Centre. Donations made during the radiothon will be matched by MNP, up to $10,000.

Lip Sync Battle
The 6th Annual Lip Sync Battle will take place at Bo’s Bar & Stage on December 1 & 15. Presented by Scott Subaru, this night of costumes, music and amazing dance moves will be sure to entertain! The December 1 show is sold out but there are still tickets available for the December 15 show.

Funds raised through the Holiday Hope Campaign will allow The Outreach Centre to support the increasing needs of the community. “Our goal this time of year is to provide a way for children and families in need to celebrate the holiday season”, says Ian Wheeliker, Executive Director at The Outreach Centre. “By participating in any of the ways mentioned above, you are ensuring that we can continue to do the work that we do. The community came through in a big way for us last year, and I want to say thank you in advance for the continued support.”
