Three non-profit organizations in the Kinderlsey are joining forces to help bring Christmas joy to those in need. The West Central Crisis Centre, Kindersley Food Bank and Kindersley Salvation Army have brought back Christmas Hampers for another year, providing food and toys to families in the west central region. 

The spirit of Christmas is often centred around people coming together to give back to others - and Christmas Hampers do just that. The program asks individuals within communities to donate food and toys that are then assembled into hampers and given to those in need.

The Christmas Hampers program has been running for over 55 years and provides hundreds of families with a holiday meal and also makes sure every child has the opportunity to receive a gift from Santa.

The Hampers rely greatly on the generousity of community members who are able to donate, Misty Leismeister is with the West Central Crisis Centre and said they are accepting donations now, and up to December 17th for Kinderlsey, Alsask, Marengo, Flaxcombe, Smiley, Eatonia and Coleville. 

Families who are in need of a hamper this holiday season can submit an application up until the 15th of December, forms are available at any of the participating locations as well as Spokes and the Kindersley Mall.
