Help deliver some goodness!

For over 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 18, 2021!

Due to COVID-19, we are NOT able to accept food donations once again 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.

Please give generously!

Thank you for helping deliver some goodness!

Volunteer

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, once again, we are limiting the volunteer opportunities that we offer. For example, we will be primarily 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 (2022) for other volunteer tasks. Thanks for your understanding!

Questions? Contact the Volunteer Coordinator for the hamper campaign, by email info@jhpartners.net or by phone 418 684-5333, ext. 11835 (please leave a message and we'll get back to you ASAP).

NOTE: We are happy to return to the Eastern Québec Learning Centre this year.  Thanks to the entire EQLC team for welcoming us back!

Receive

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 15, 2021.

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. 11805.

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.

Call Jeffery Hale Community Services to speak with a social worker
at 418 684-5333, ext. 11805.
