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?

Step 1: Decide on the family size you wish to sponsor and how many families then print and review the Christmas Cheer Board brochure for further instructions, a shopping list for mandatory hamper contents and gift information for children 14 and under.

Step 2: Complete the 2019 Christmas Cheer Board Feed-a-Family Sponsor Registration below (scroll down the form by using TAB or the scroll bar on the right side) OR call 204-989-5680 starting November 1 to register.

Step 3: Once you receive your family information, you must agree to a Feed-a-Family Confidentiality Agreement agreeing to:

  • maintain family information confidentiality

  • provide the mandatory hamper contents and gifts for applicable children

  • deliver the hamper by December 21.

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.
