Local Charity Event: Cork Cares "Sips for Support"

In the spirit of community and compassion in Calgary, Cork Fine Wine, Liquor & Ale is thrilled to announce its upcoming event on Nov.30th, "Cork Cares: Sips for Support."

This unique initiative is about enjoying exquisite wines and spirits and significantly impacting local families in need through Closer to Home Calgary's Adopt-a-Family program. We’ll take a five at this event and cause on this article. 

About Closer to Home

Founded in the 1990s, Closer to Home Community Services (CTH) has supported children, youth, and families facing challenges in the Calgary community. Offering a range of programs, including family support, crisis intervention, educational programs, and foster care services, CTH addresses critical issues such as family breakdown, mental health challenges, and the struggles of new immigrants and low-income families.

Closer to Home's multifaceted approach has a profound impact on the Calgary community, addressing critical issues such as:

  • Family breakdown
  • Mental health challenges
  • Complexities faced by new immigrants
  • Support for low-income families

In providing essential support services, Closer to Home contributes to the well-being of families and individuals facing various challenges in the community.

Adopt-a-Family Program

As the holiday season approaches, CTH’s Adopt-a-Family program takes center stage. This seasonal initiative alleviates financial and emotional stress for needy families. The process involves identifying families through community services, allowing individuals, businesses, or groups to sponsor a family, and providing discreet support through gift cards or financial donations.

How it works

CTH identifies families in need through its community services, facilitating a sponsorship program where individuals, businesses, or groups receive wish lists detailing the family's needs and preferences.

Sponsors contribute through gift cards or financial donations, empowering families to procure essential items like food, clothing, or gifts during the holiday season. The process prioritizes discretion and respect, safeguarding the dignity and privacy of the families involved, often maintaining anonymity between sponsors and recipients.
