Holiday Hampers – How can I help?

If you are feeling moved by the holiday spirit of giving, there are a number of ways you can help with this year’s Holiday Hampers program.

We gratefully welcome all contributions to our hamper program, both large and small, all financial donations go towards the cost of buying the many contents of the hampers that cannot be covered by our generous in-kind donations or hamper sponsors.

You can donate directly to the holiday hamper program here or mail a donation to W.E. Graham Community Service Society, Box 10, 1001 Harold Street, Slocan, BC, V0G 2C0 

Individuals, families, groups or businesses can choose to sponsor a family hamper. You will be allocated a household of the size of your choosing and provided with a list of what the hamper should include. Then you get to shop, wrap and assemble the hamper yourself, selecting gifts and additional seasonal items for that personal touch. This is the perfect choice for those who love to shop, for groups or businesses where everyone contributes, or for parents who want to introduce their children to the joy of giving. You can also include a personal greeting card.
