Safeway/Sobeys/IGA grocery donation bins

Each year our long standing partners, Safeway/Sobeys/IGA,  allow us to benefit from the grocery donation bins in their stores.

Christmas Cheer Board volunteers pickup donated groceries each day. Once at the warehouse, groceries are sorted and packed in hampers.

We encourage you to use this convenience to contribute non-perishable food to the Cheer Board.

Hamper packing

We rely on children in grades 4 to 12 to pack hampers.

Teachers register their classes in October and we schedule 20 packing days morning and afternoon to complete this huge task.
