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 releaseinfographic or video.  Listen to a November 2020 CBC Radio interview with Brigitte Wellens, campaign spokesperson.

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.

We did it together! Thanks so much!

Thank you for helping deliver some goodness!


I’d like to give my time to help deliver some goodness!

Given the current situation, we have everyone's health and safety at heart. To minimize the number of people in the same space at the same time, we have reviewed all of the volunteer opportunities that we usually offer. This year, we will only be recruiting for delivery teams (driver and helper from the same household).

If you are interested in delivering hampers, be sure to note the qualifications in the next column and the instructions to register as a volunteer.

We hope to be able to bring everyone together again NEXT year (2021) for collection, sorting and packing. Thanks for your understanding!

Questions? Contact Jessica, the Volunteer Coordinator for the hamper campaign, by email jprice@jhpartners.net or by phone 418 684-5333, ext. 1550.

 A special note to driver teams in 2020

Take a look at the driveway of the Centre des congrès de Québec.  Remember to stay in your car when you get there.  We will come to you.  Registered drivers will receive full instructions by email.  Please follow them closely to protect everyone's health!


How and when can I register?

Anyone in need of a hamper may register by contacting a church, organization or institution listed in the hamper registry pamphlet before Monday, November 16, 2020.

If your child attends a school in the Central Quebec School Board, you can contact your school social worker or nurse who may be reached at Jeffery Hale Community Services, 418 684-5333, ext. 1580

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.
