Celebrating 25 years in 2020!

For the last 25 years, the English-speaking community of the Greater Québec City region has collaborated in running a successful Community Christmas Hamper Campaign. We distribute Christmas hampers to over 200 homes in need, which is an enormous challenge with a most heart-warming outcome. Learn more in the press release (available Nov. 1), infographic or video.

Jeffery Hale Community Partners coordinates the campaign's central registry of English-speaking community members who need help during the holiday season.

Join our efforts from November 1 to December 19, 2020!

Due to COVID-19, we are NOT able to accept food donations this year, but you can still give to the campaign by making a monetary donation and by offering your volunteer time.  Help us spread the word! See the Partners section below to download our printable and shareable publicity tools.

Thanks so much for helping deliver some goodness!

How and when can I register?

What happens once I’ve registered?

This is a confidential service. Your contact person will give your name and address confidentially to the central registry for the Community Christmas Hamper Campaign. After this is done, names and addresses will be checked for duplication. Your contact person will call you to tell you the date and the approximate time of delivery. We would ask that you make a point of being at home to receive your hamper. It will be delivered to you by a team of volunteers.

What are other helpful resources available to me?

If you need further help, there are many community services that may be of help to you, including: referrals to other helping agencies (food banks), help with income tax returns, access to a free job bank.
