Christmas Hamper Campaign 2010

Organizing Committee for the 15th Annual Community Christmas Hamper Campaign Already Hard at Work …

Quebec City Community Christmas Hamper Campaign Team 2010.

The Community Christmas Hamper Campaign (CCHC) is deftly organized by a team of committed, hard-working jovial volunteers who roll up their sleeves in September and don’t stop until January! This caring crew represents the 22 English-speaking organizations that partner together to put a Christmas meal on the table for 200 plus families in-need during the holiday season.

Everyone plays a key role in one of more of the following areas: fund raising, organizing collection of  nonperishable donations, managing recipient lists, purchasing boxes, food and other supplies, overseeing publicity, recording public service announcements, and this year for the first time developing a Facebook group to help promote the campaign.
