Sponsor a hamper

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 in a more hands-on way. As well, by delivering the hamper, you’ll see the impact you have on a family directly.

What's involved?

Register for hamper sponsorship and Christmas Cheer Board volunteers will match you with a family(ies) who have applied for a hamper.

You must:

  1. agree to a Feed-a- Family Confidentiality Agreement once you have received hamper recipient family information

  2. provide the mandatory hamper contents and gifts for applicable children

  3. deliver the hamper by December 21.

Note:  if you are requesting a tax receipt, please keep all receipts for hamper items purchased and complete and include the FAF Tax Receipt Request form and mail to the Christmas Cheer Board by January 15, 2019.  You can also bring your request to the Cheer Board by December 29. Original receipts are required.

Print our Christmas Cheer Board brochure for further instructions and a shopping list for mandatory hamper contents and gift information for children 14 and under.

Then complete the Feed-a-Family Sponsor Request form below (scroll down the form by using TAB or the scroll bar on the right side) OR call 204-989-5680 starting November 5 to register.

Hamper applications started November 13. 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.
