SPRUCE GROVE & EAST PARKLAND
CHRISTMAS HAMPERS 2020
THANK YOU for your continued support, generosity and kindness towards local deserving families that need a helping hand this holiday season.
For the 47th year, the Spruce Grove Kinette volunteers are working to make Christmas brighter for local families struggling with a limited income. Our goal is to support families in need with food and gifts for the holidays and last year, with your help, we assisted 606 families in our area, and supported close to 1900 residents!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions, there will be major changes to the Christmas Hamper program this year, and we will NOT be collecting non-perishable food items. We will collect monetary donations and local grocery store gift cards to 'upsize' the Parkland Food Bank December hamper for all clients. We will still be running the gift portion of the program as usual, and will collect and distribute gifts and gift cards to children 17 and under. Last year, we provided gifts to 697 children in our area!
To ensure a diverse selection of age-appropriate gifts, we are asking for donations of new, unwrapped gifts or gift cards that are based on your child's gender and age. For children 10 and older, gift cards are ideal. Please refer to www.sgkinettes.ca for additional information and gift ideas.
Items will be accepted until Friday, December 11, 2020 (to be determined by the school). Hampers will then be assembled and distributed to deserving families throughout the community during the week of December 14th.
THANK YOU for your incredible support of local families at Christmas. Best wishes for a safe, happy and healthy holiday season!
