If you, or you know someone, that is in need this holiday season please ask about our Holiday Hampers!
Salvation Army Christmas Hamper applications are available for families in need. The application does not take long to fill out and many families qualify for help. If after accounting for rent, groceries, childcare, vehicle, and other expenses, a family has less than $500/month of income remaining, they qualify for a hamper. Turkey & potato or chicken & rice hampers are available to better meet the cultural needs of families. Individuals need to bring identification (OW or ODSP Drug Card, Birth Certificate, Driver’s License, or Passport) for everyone in their household, rent receipts, and income statements.
Hope House each year during the holiday season they provide Christmas hampers to their clients. Included in these hampers are the ingredients needed for a traditional holiday meal, presents for the families’ children. If you are interested in applying for this hamper please call Hope house at 75 Norfolk St., Guelph, Ontario, N1H2W6 (519)-265-4299
Private Donations if you’re not in need of a hamper, but just a little bit of help in getting some items for your child or children. Sometimes we get private donations. Give us what you’re looking for; we may be able to help.
