Christmas Hamper Day 2023

December 18

Christmas Hamper Supporters,

Save the date!  Hamper Assembly Day will be Monday December 18th 2023. Our plan this year is to prepare and deliver 170 hampers on that day.

Each Christmas Hamper contains a week’s worth of groceries, a grocery gift card meant to purchase a turkey or other festive perishables, and a gift for each school-aged child in the family.

Referrals for hampersReferrals are accepted from parish schools, and through the SSVP intake line at 403-249-0423 extension 122.  Referrals for Christmas are accepted beginning October 1st.

Please support us:

Volunteer! Many hands will be needed in the days leading up to and on Hamper Day. Watch for our sign-up session on the weekend of November 18/19; and November 25/26. Further information about volunteer requirements is available from our Parish Volunteer Coordinator, Marvin Matthews. mmatthews@saintmichael.ca

Join the Organizing Committee! Our initial meeting is Tuesday September 19th at 7 pm at the church. Please contact Colleen at jcfitzpat@shaw.ca to confirm attendance and for further details.


Food Donations: Christmas Hampers contain a standard list of goods and quantities, purchased wholesale, at a substantial cost saving. Your monetary donation helps us with this purchase. SSVP provides support to families year-round, and food donations received will be placed in the larder, for use by SSVP to address late hamper requests and after-Christmas hamper needs.

Children’s gifts: All school-age children whose family receives a hamper are provided a gift. Watch for the Angel Tree on the weekend of November 25/26, and again December 2/3
