Christmas is just around the corner and for many of us this is an exciting time of year; a time when we can enjoy the company of our families and friends. For some though, this can be a time of worry. I’m sure you can imagine what Christmas would be like in a new home with no presents under the tree and no food on the table. The holidays can be a very sad and lonely time for families who have recently left the shelter.

The Christmas Hamper Program is a collaboration of WIN House, Lurana Shelter, La Salle, Valeda and Katherine Drexel Place. Our Outreach workers act as a human bridge to the community and connect families to resources and agencies that help with their transition to a new life.

Will you sponsor a hamper?

Sponsor drop offs this year are: December 13th & 14th at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

Your commitment to sponsor a family will provide a family with something special under the tree for Christmas morning and a food hamper based on the size of the family with all the necessary things for Christmas Day. You can act by sponsoring a family this Christmas!
