Christmas Hampers

January 6, 2019

THANK YOU!

Our 2018 Christmas Hamper Campaign has now wrapped up. This past year, we were able to help 245 families in our community by providing them with a hamper 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.

Obviously, this program is a very large and expensive undertaking. We are very grateful to the many volunteers who assisted us, notably from our supporting churches, the schools who conducted food drives and the many businesses, community groups and individuals who contributed to this year’s Christmas hamper campaign or in response to our tornado relief efforts, including:

2018 Christmas Hamper Campaign

Our 2018 Christmas Hamper Campaign is now underway. Each year, FAMSAC provides a Christmas hamper to over 220 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.
