'TIS THE SEASON FOR GIVING
The holidays can be a challenging time for some Calgarian Families, and this year is no different. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of many in our city and Lexus of Calgary is proud to lend a helping hand and support the Calgary community.
Every year, the Lexus of Calgary team participates in a United Way Fundraising Campaign to support our favourite local charities and the community services provided by the United Way. Our campaign has been running since 2006 and will continue far into the future.
ABOUT THE UNITED WAY
The United Way knows that everyone needs a hand at one point or another, and believes that everyone deserves a fair shot at a good life. They also recognize that in a city as large as Calgary, it is impossible for one individual or organization to respond to all the social needs. United Way of Calgary and Area operates within a strong network of social services so everyone has access to programs and services when they need them, guaranteeing daily assistance for our community’s most vulnerable people.
For more information on how you can donate to the United Way and the charities within their network, please visit their website.
This December, we have once again teamed up with Closer to Home Community Services by providing a donation of $200.00 per every car sold during the month to their Adopt-A-Family initiative. Lexus of Calgary has partnered with Closer to Home for a number of years to do our part in helping those who are facing challenges in life and need some added support.
ABOUT CLOSER TO HOME
Closer to Home Community Services works with families that are at risk of being separated or falling into crisis. The organization aides these families and their communities by addressing the broad range of issues that affect their ability to stay together and remain properly provided for. The Adopt-A-Family initiative, specifically helps low-income families provide for their children with all the joys of Christmas.

The Magic of Christmas is a charity near and dear to the heart of a Lexus of Calgary team member. This year we provided a cash donation to support the volunteers on delivery day to ensure they had the means for successfully delivering gifts, food and toys to those who need it most.
ABOUT THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS
The Magic of Christmas is a 100% volunteer, non-denominational charity based in the city of Calgary. Every Christmas Eve, they load up Calgary Transit "reindeer" buses, loaded with hundreds of gifts and volunteers dressed as Santa and his elves. Volunteers then deliver Christmas spirit into the homes and hearts of those who need it most.

Mamas for Mamas is a charity near and dear to the heart of a Lexus of Calgary team member. This year, the Lexus of Calgary team got together to raise a cash donation for the organization's Christmas Hamper program.
ABOUT MAMAS FOR MAMAS
Mamas for Mamas is a charitable organization that supports mothers and caregivers in crisis by providing ongoing support to individuals and families facing various poverty-related struggles. They provide a space where Mamas and their kids feel safe and comfortable when they come in for poverty relief support while also providing services related to clothing or food insecurity, mental health care, and everything else that can easily fall through the cracks.
