Christmas for Kids

“Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.” ~ Ruth Carter Stapleton

As we begin our preparations for this Christmas season, we ask you to consider how you can make a difference to a family in need this year. Christmas for Kids at the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank  has been providing Christmas hampers and gifts to low-income working families in Cambridge since 2001. With your support at Christmas, we will be able to help over 900 children receive gifts and/or food that provides relief from everyday challenges.

How you can help!

Sponsor a Family:

Ask your family, friends, and co-workers to join you.  We will provide you with a profile of a family and a special wish list to help you personalize the experience.  It’s a fun and rewarding way to experience the joy of giving. It’s up to you to decide what you would like to contribute and purchase. Please contact Grace at 519-622-6550 ext. 109
Your gifts will be delivered to the family in time for the holidays.

Gift Donation:

Perhaps you would like to drop off an unwrapped gift or toy at the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank for a child between the ages of 0-8 years. Purchase a new unwrapped toy for a special little someone today.

Tweens and Teens

Tweens and Teens are still kids at heart and we have not forgotten them.  This age group receives a Christmas stocking and a gift card to the value of $25.00.  We are in need of gift cards from the mall,  HMV, Galaxy theatres, etc. in the amount of $25.00 for our Teen and Tweens

Cash Donations:

Many families don’t get a sponsor and we also welcome cash donations to buy coats, boots, books, toys, and other items for these families. You can send a donation to:

54 Ainslie St. South, Cambridge On   N1R 3H3 or call Ellen at 519-622-6550 ext. 101 to make a donation on your credit card

Christmas Food Hamper:

Each family receives a special Christmas Food Hamper containing a Turkey, potatoes, canned vegetables and fruit, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, apple juice, and cookies
