We'd appreciate your best effort to arrive by:

  • Mornings - 9:30 am

Hamper packing will take about 75 – 90 minutes.   

On arrival you will be greeted by our Hamper Line Coordinator. After a brief orientation, you’ll proceed to the hamper packing area, where adult volunteers are waiting to assist students.  Each student is given instruction on their specific station.  

Please remember:

  • Packing is completed in a warehouse environment with power equipment. It is very dry and dusty. Please beware of any of your students’ health issues.
  • Media may be present at any time so please be sure students 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.
