Help the Christmas Cheer Board by sponsoring a hamper through our Feed-a-Family program.
Sponsoring a hamper engages family members, teams, students or co-workers to give back to the community while helping those in need during the holiday season and by delivering the hamper, you’ll see the impact you have on a family directly.
Step 1: Print and review the Christmas Cheer Board Brochure for instructions including a shopping list for mandatory hamper contents and gift information for children 14 and under.
Step 2: Decide on the family size and how many families you wish to sponsor. Approximate hamper costs are listed in the brochure.
Step 3: Complete the 2019 Christmas Cheer Board Feed-a-Family Sponsor Registration below OR call 204-989-5680.
Step 4: Once you receive your family information, you must agree to a Feed-a-Family Agreement agreeing to:
- maintain family information confidentiality
- provide the mandatory hamper contents and gifts for applicable children
- deliver the hamper between December 14 and December 20. If you are unable to contact the recipient you must try delivery two times.
Tax receipt: if you are requesting a tax receipt, please keep all receipts for hamper items purchased, complete and include the FAF Tax Receipt Request form and mail to the Christmas Cheer Board by January 15, 2020. You can also bring your request to the Cheer Board by December 29. Original receipts are required.
Hamper applications start November 12, 2019. It takes some time to process, accumulate and match requests with families. Family information will be provided about 10 business days after registration.
You may begin to gather non-perishables for the family size you have requested.
