Community Christmas

The Community Christmas project is a one-day initiative created for community, by community, to bring positive change to Black youth from historic Black communities in Nova Scotia. Each participant is paired with another youth from a different community and chaperoned by a Black mentor from community. Each youth receives a $500 gift card to Halifax Shopping Centre, to purchase gifts for themselves, or a loved one. Participants are provided transportation, lunch, and a life-changing experience. In 2022, our project was able to provide participant families with a $100 grocery gift card to assist with food insecurity during the holiday season.
