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 2021 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
- arrange contactless, curbside delivery between December 14 and December 20. If you are unable to contact the recipient you must try delivery two times.
- confirm to the Cheer Board you have delivered the hamper.
Tax receipt: if you are requesting a tax receipt, please keep all receipts for hamper items purchased, complete and include completed FAF Tax Receipt Request and mail to the Christmas Cheer Board. Your tax receipt request must be post marked December 31 or earlier. Original receipts are required.
Hamper applications start Friday, November 12. 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.
