Groups (schools, businesses, service groups, sports teams, etc.) may help support the Christmas Cheer Board by:

2. Collecting money for a donation
We welcome delivery drivers to our warehouse from Dec. 7 to Dec. 23 to help get hampers out to those in need. If you are a large group looking to help during this busy time, email volunteer@ christmascheerboard.ca to learn more.

Hamper Packing Program
We are very excited to bring back our Hamper Packing Program at the warehouse this year!
Hamper packing is available weekdays for schools in the morning and new this year, for groups in the afternoon starting Tuesday, November 15 to Thursday, December 15.
Hamper packing takes about 75 – 90 minutes, requiring 20-25 participants.
- Packing is completed in a warehouse environment with power equipment. It is very dry and dusty. Please beware of any of your groups’ health issues.
- Media may be present at any time so please be sure to have a photo release.
- If for some reason you are unable to participate on your confirmed scheduled date and time, please ensure you notify us as soon as possible 204-989-5680.
