Christmas Hampers

December 30, 2019

THANK YOU!

Our 2019 Christmas Hamper Campaign has now wrapped up and it was our busiest year ever! Thanks to the generosity of so many donors and volunteers, were able to help 267 families in our community by providing them with a hamper with all of the fixings for a full Christmas dinner as well as a week’s worth of meals, including fresh foods.

2019 Christmas Hamper Campaign

Our 2018 Christmas Hamper Campaign is now underway. Each year, FAMSAC provides a Christmas hamper to over 225 families in our community. Each hamper is filled with all of the fixings for a full Christmas dinner (turkey, stuffing, potatoes, veggies, cake and sweet treats) as well as a week’s worth of meals, including fresh foods.

If your family needs a little help this holiday season, please call 613-820-5428 and leave a message on our answering machine requesting a Christmas hamper. One of our volunteers will be in touch with you to confirm the arrangements.

Obviously, this program is a very large and expensive undertaking. That’s why we’re also inviting families and businesses within our community to sponsor a Christmas hamper for their neighbours. A $100 donation covers the cost of one full hamper. You can make a contribution to our Christmas Hamper Campaign by sending a cheque to our mailing address or online via Canada Helps.
