Every Christmas, greengate Garden Centres brings our community together to help support the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
The holiday season is especially difficult for those without a place to call home. Therefore, in the spirit of the season, we encourage everyone to help the CHF and its partner agencies by purchasing specially selected Christmas Tree ornaments, advent calendars and/or wall décor* for just $3 each.
Every penny from the sale of these items will go to assist the most vulnerable members of our community. *While supplies last.
greengate will also donate a portion of proceeds from all sales throughout the month of December.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, we cannot accept your donations of much needed items as we did pre-pandemic.
We encourage you to take donations directly to the homeless serving charity of your choice.

"For 17 years, greengate Garden Centres has partnered with CHF through their yearly giving campaigns.
This year, their Hope for Humanity Roses Campaign and Help the Homeless Campaign raised $4,291 to help end homelessness in Calgary. They also collected clothing, winter jackets and blankets that we distributed among front line agencies in Calgary.
For their continued support & compassion, we celebrate greengate Garden Centres and their customers for making Calgary beautiful with what they grow & what they give."
All donations and a portion of sales during the campaign went directly to the Calgary Homeless Foundation and their affiliates to support those in need in our city.
