About Our Auction

The Auction was extended from the 15th to the 17th to accommodate some late donations.

Elizabeth Fry's annual Christmas online auction will provide ongoing support of our Volunteer and Court Programs in 2022.

The EFry Volunteer program has supported our core programs for the past 55 years. Volunteers learn valuable skills for their own professional development as well as give back to the community through their support of marginalized peoples engaged in the legal and justice system.

Volunteers provide assistance on the court floors and court house to support navigation, assist with court matters through securing and referring to legal and community resources, assisting with understanding the court processes as well as assist with filling out of legal documents and legal filing.

Additionally, volunteer youth mentors provide ongoing and meaningful relationships to community youth who have limited resources and absent or removed caregivers in their lives. They assist them with both engagement in prosocial activities as well as with resources and supports to address their legal matters.

Volunteers also are pinnacle in providing support at the main office by providing assistance with programs, direct client support and administrative support.

We currently provide support to Calgary Indigenous Court, Domestic Violence Court, Case Management Office -Criminal Court, Traffic and Bylaw as well as Youth Criminal Court. In addition to Calgary, we serve the rural areas of Okotoks, Cochrane, Canmore and Airdrie. Legal advocacy support is provided to both Calgary and the community of Morley (Stoney Nakoda First Nations).

Our goal is 20,000 for 2021. Please join us between December 3-17th, 2021 to support these valuable and meaningful services.
