The Neighbourhood Centre’s Holiday Hamper program is a mainstay of our community. Each December, we prepare and deliver hampers containing gifts for the entire family. It is a wonderful time where volunteers, staff members, donors and businesses come together to – quite literally – make dreams come true for families in need.
Our goal is to provide food and gifts to 100 local families who cannot afford to do so on their own. This is your chance to give something memorable, a gift that will never be forgotten and that means more than you will know. Each Hamper contains gifts for the entire family, such as clothing, shoes, and toys. Financial contributions and in-kind donations also enable us to include additional items such as hygiene products, canned food, and a holiday meal including a turkey and all the fixins’.
In 2015, one mother shared,
The food alone was perfect! I was able to have my family over and everything was so nice. As for the gifts, I wouldn’t have been able to get everything for my kids that they wanted. So knowing the hamper was coming, I was able to relax, it was a weight off my heart.
Whether you would like to adopt a family to shop for, DONATE items or money to provide a hamper to a family in need, or VOLUNTEER your time to the 2018 Neighbourhood Centre Holiday Hamper Program, we welcome your participation.
