Gifts from the Heart Holiday Campaign

Give a gift that feels good this holiday season by joining Red Roof Retreat in celebrating their 7th Annual Gifts from the Heart Holiday Campaign! The 7th annual campaign goal will help them provide another year of respite and recreational programs for children and young adults with special needs in the Niagara Region.

Red Roof Retreat’s Gifts from the Heart campaign evolved out of the Arthur Dalfen Gift Matching Challenge in 2011. At that time, the goal was to turn $10,000 into $20,000 however the campaign was so successful, bringing in $60,000, they decided to keep it going. The following year it was re launched as the Gifts from the Heart Campaign and continued with the same goal of $60,000.

This year’s campaign will kick off mid-November and will continue through the end of 2017. Past generous supporters have made a difference to the 150 children and young adults by:

  • Keeping programs affordable to families
  • Sustaining current programs and addressing wait lists
  • Reaching more children and adults by developing new programs to meet the needs
  • Helping families stay strong by supporting their needs
  • Giving special needs children and adults a place they can call a “Home away from home”

The organizations Special Events Coordinator Karen Post says that donating is easy, “people can visit our website at to make an online donation or by calling our offices at 289-868-9800”.

“Every donation large or small helps Red Roof to continue to improve our programs and serve more families,” she said. “Throughout Niagara there are more than 3,500 families with special needs.”
