Christmas Hampers

Christmas Hampers

For many Christmas is not a time filled with festivity and hope, but it can be...because Santa's got lots of help here!

Each year the Alexandra Centre Society comes together to carefully organize and assemble food hampers that bring comfort, joy, and warm respite from hard times, because everyone should feel the true spirit of Christmas!

This year the Alexandra Centre Society will provide Christmas hampers to 110 families within our local service area.  Our 2016 program made the season merry for 91 families (225 people, including 91 children)!

With the help of..

  • community service agencies who refer families & individuals in need;
  • local businesses, merchants, corporate groups, and individual donors who give generously to our cause;
  • our dedicated volunteers who put in hundreds of hours to help us bring it all together

...WE THANK YOU!!!
