The 2023 Holiday Hamper program was our biggest year to date, with more than 150 households from throughout the valley receiving Holiday Hampers.
The Holiday Hamper program takes a huge amount of dedication and generosity to make it a success each year. This includes exceptional commitment from our staff, who make this happen on top of all their regular duties, an array of enthusiastic volunteers from throughout the community, including delivery drivers, school students, kitchen volunteers, present wrappers, and donations of all kinds, large and small, financial and practical, from individuals, local businesses and organisations, corporations, and funders.
There are so many people to thank it is impossible to mention everyone, but the organisations and businesses who contributed this year included; Columbia Basin Trust, Evergreen Market and Kitchen, Ferraro Foods, Trail, Flaca’s Cafe, Fortis BC, Kootenay Co-op, Mazon Canada, Oso Negro Coffee, RDCK area H, Safeway, Castlegar, Safeway, Nelson, Save on Foods, Nelson, the Slocan Legion, Slocan Village Market, Shoppers Drug Mart, Nelson, the Threads Guild, the Village of Slocan, and Walmart, Nelson
