Group Leader

Hi friends!

Thank you SO much for visiting Friends with Hearts Niagara and for your interest in showing support for this amazing movement! I can’t wait to share this experience with everyone interested!

My name is Paje Pokjowy and I am honoured to bring FWH to our region. Living in Niagara my whole life, I’ve come to realize just how close we are as a community. I wanted to bring FWH to the region because I know first hand what it’s like to grow up in a family who couldn’t always afford to have a glorious Christmas.

Now that I’m an adult, a mother and a small business owner, I believe that it’s our role to help those who are going over their own speed bumps during a time when they need it most.

Through your donations and time volunteered to Friends with Hearts, my goal is to sponsor as many families as possible and give them the magical Christmas they deserve! Let’s do this!

No, FWH is not a registered charity nor does the group have to be. We work with local charities, non-profit organizations, schools, and churches to support their holiday giving programs. We advocate that 100% of our donations goes toward the families – to include gifts, gift cards, food, cards and wrapping paper.
