We understand that not everyone can afford to celebrate Christmas, which is why we have been providing food hampers and gifts to families in need since 2002. Last year, the Christmas Project helped 610 families and individuals enjoy a festive meal and receive age-appropriate gifts. Our hampers include Christmas pudding, vegetables, snacks and dessert, while our gifts range from toys and trinkets to bikes, scooters, and skateboards.

The 2023 Christmas Project is now closed. You can support our Emergency Food Aid Service, which provides relief to families in need throughout the year.
