First started in 2006 by Shelley James of The Hairstyle Inn, TLC@Home started off small distributing shoeboxes of gifts to one Saskatoon community school ( Princess Alexandra). Now 10 years later Cameco, Global Saskatoon Cruz FM, TRusted Saskatoon, Trusted Marketing Servcies and others have joined them along the way as partners in the gift program. Many volunteers made up of Cameco staff, clients and team members of Hairstyle Inn along with the Global team and members of the public come together to fill shoeboxes.

These shoeboxes filled with holiday cheer are distributed to more than 800 students at schools which have included; Princess Alexandra Community School, St. Michael Community School, King George Community School and Pleasant Hill Community School.
