Children between the ages of 7 and 14 take gifts home from the High Five Shop as a reward for actively participating in the Stewart House Program
How you can participate in our gift-giving program for the children of Stewart House
During a stay at Stewart House, children participate in an awards program where they receive High Five Dollars for upholding the three core values of the Stewart House Program.
- To be safe
- Kind and fair
- Having a go
These ”dollars” can then be used in the Stewart House High Five Shop, which stocks a wide range of brand new and age-appropriate toys and gifts for which the children redeem their dollars on the day before departure.
Also, each child celebrating a birthday while at Stewart House gets to take home a present from a range of brand new items. It’s a real treat!
This fun element of the program would not be possible if not for the generosity of support from the many schools, individuals, clubs and organisations who embark on Gift Drives at different times of the year to assist with replenishing our stock.
If you or an organisation you work for is interested in donating end-of-line stock, please contact our office to start the conversation. Help us put a smile on their faces. We would love to hear from you!
