Christmas Hamper Donations

Home » Christmas Appeal » Christmas Hamper Donations

Can you help fill us food and gift hampers this Christmas?

Christmas is meant to be a time of celebration and joy, however for the people we support, Christmas can be the toughest time of the year as more and more find themselves struggling to make ends meet.

Every year, we distribute over 400 Christmas hampers to families and single people across our services. We expect to support people more this year.

You, your company, school or church can help by donating non-perishable foods, toiletries and Christmas gifts and treats. We are looking for new, unopened items only. See our 2023 Christmas wish list below of items people in our services do need or download and share the list.
