Non-Profit Established 2020

The Mission

Crystal’s Gift is a non-profit designed to provide members of the public with the opportunity to give back to the community by donating gently used household items to single mothers in vulnerable situations. Conceptualizing the focused effort needed to help single mothers specifically was a vision created prior to the year 2000 by a young woman named Crystal and the mission is to keep her vision alive. The mission was initiated by her youngest sister in 2017. 

The Vision

Crystal Lee Paskemin was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, on May 11, 1979. Throughout her life time she touched many lives with her contagious smile, undeniable compassion for those in need, and a special passion about helping the many single mothers and children that crossed her path. Crystal shared this calling with her family and pastor shortly before being called home. On December 29, 2000, she was the victim of one of the provinces most inhumane murders in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Safety Precations

Safety precautions are observed when donations are received. Precautions include minimal touching and a storage neutralization period. It is the responsibility of both the donor and donee to disinfect their items accordingly.
