At the Christmas Spirit Campaign we collect donations of toys and non-perishable food items, but in order to make the hampers truly complete for a Christmas feast we also include fresh (perishable) food items. For this we rely on donated funds to the campaign. Your gift of money goes towards the purchase of fresh food and items that make up the Christmas hampers.
We also use gifts of money to complete all hampers, ensuring there are enough toys, gifts, and non-perishable food items in all the hampers.
In addition to supporting the Christmas Spirit Campaign, your cash contribution can make it feel like Christmas all year long! At the Bow Valley Christmas Sprit Campaign, we believe Christmas is a time for dignity, compassion, and caring for community. We also believe in contributing to the long term sustainability of food security which will ensure that people have access to healthy, nutritious food all year long, not just at Christmas. We are part of the Bow Valley Food Alliance, a local organization dedicated to addressing food security issues regarding access to affordable, healthy and fresh food as a means to strengthen the community’s connection to food and achieve a thriving, healthy and socially engaged community. If we receive more funding for the Christmas Spirit Campaign than we need, we support other initiatives in the Bow Valley that address these same issues at other times of the year.
