The Holiday Hamper Program has created positive change in our community for 20+ years. Each year, supporters sign up as Elves and “adopt” a family or families in need. Elves shop for their assigned families and create a hamper that includes all the components of a delicious and healthy holiday meal. They also shop for special gifts for each child of the family. On Delivery Day – the Saturday before December 25th– Elves drive to Edmonton Expo Centre to receive turkeys or fish, roasting pans, fresh produce, and their family adress(es). Then, the magic happens! Elves hand-deliver hampers to their family(ies) – filling everyone’s heart with joy.
Donate to Help Purchase a Turkey or Fish.
We rely 100% on donations to purchase the protein (turkey or fish), to complete each hampers’ holiday meal. And though our wonderful suppliers give us preferential pricing, last year it cost our Foundation $60,000, and that price increases every year. Go to holidayhamper.ca/donate and decide if you/your company will make one-time or continuous monthly donations.
Adopt Families, and Become Holiday Hamper Elves
Register your company to become Holiday Hamper Elves, and shop, build, wrap, and hand-deliver JOY to families in our community. Register you/your family/your company as an Elf online at holidayhamper.ca. During the first week of December, you will receive the family information and then it is time to shop! Follow the grocery list, and purchase small gifts for the children. Assemble your hampers and wrap your gifts. Take pictures of your team and tag @holidayhamper. Load your hampers, suggested 2 per vehicle, and come to the Expo Centre the Saturday before December 25th. Get your proteins, produce, and family address and deliver JOY!
Please note: Pickup will be outside Hall GH (no entry inside)
