Quebec City Community Christmas Hamper Campaign 2010

Quebec City Community Christmas Hamper Campaign 2010

The 15th Annual Community Christmas Hamper Campaign Has Begun.
This runs from November 7th to December 12th 2010.

Every year over 200 Christmas hampers are filled and distributed to English-speaking households in the Quebec City region. These hampers provide families in need with a Christmas dinner and a sense of holiday cheer that they might not otherwise enjoy.

The Community Christmas Hamper Campaign needs your help to reach this goal.

The campaign accepts cash donations in lieu of food. Non-perishable foods and hygiene products are also accepted. This includes: canned goods, cereals, dried pasta, puddings, cake and or muffin mixes, coffee, tea, mayonnnaise, ketchup, mustard, tooth paste, shampoo etc.

Please note that, unfortunately, no homemade items or foods with expired ‘best before’ dates can be accepted as they cannot be distributed.

If giving a cash donation of $10 or more, a tax receipt will be issued. 

Cheques can be made payable to Community Christmas Hamper Campaign’ and mailed to:
