PROGRAM Information

 

THANK YOU for your continued support, generosity and kindness towards local deserving families that need a helping hand this holiday season.

For the 48th 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 580 families in our area, and supported close to 1900 residents!

Planning for the 2021 season is well underway. This year's program will be running with the same changes we made last year:

  • The Parkland Food Bank will be administering the distribution of the food portion of the Christmas Hampers, in the form of an ‘upsized’ December hamper for all clients. The Kinettes will not collect and distribute non-perishable food, but will support the Parkland Food Bank with gift cards for food to contribute to the upsized December hamper.
  • The gift portion of the Christmas Hamper program will be run completely separate from the food. The Kinettes will collect and distribute gifts and gift cards to children 17 and under. Last year, we provided gifts to 651 children in our area!
  • In light of the changes these past 2 years, we encourage gift cards and monetary donations.

We rely on our community and surrounding area to donate to this important, local cause. We are a 100% volunteer-based non-profit group, and can only assist those in need in our community with your help. Our primary goal is to have donations meet the need in our area at Christmas. 

YOU CAN HELP us reach our goals and support your community at Christmas by DONATING:

  1. Monetary donations or local grocery store gift cards will go towards a family’s ‘upsized’ December food hamper.
  2. Gift cards or new, unwrapped gifts for children 17 and under (local gift cards are ideal for ages 10+).
