Christmas campaign

THANK YOU to all the generous donors and partners!

It is thanks to you that 767 people have spent a holiday season worthy of the name.

Generous Christmas baskets

Each basket contains everything a family needs to make a wonderful festive meal and has enough food to last at least a week.

191 families (613 people) received a food basket that included vegetables and meat.

Thanks to Mrs. Carolyn H. Renaud’s generosity, grocery gift cards were also distributed to these families

Sponsored families

Our sponsorship program is a unique initiative that provides 50 Toujours ensemble families with a food basket made just for them that includes personalized gifts for each child aged 18 and younger.

25 sponsored families (114 people) received a customized food basket as well as personalized gifts and grocery gift cards.

Thanks you to all our generous sponsors!

Dynamic and committed volunteers

64 volunteers gave 278 hours of their time for the preparation, distribution and deliveries.

The Gazette Christmas Fund

The Gazette Christmas Fund distributed cheques in the amount of $125 to 20 families (40 people).

Thanks from the families

“It was beyond our expectations, amazing gifts personally wrapped that were immediately useful to us… I have no words to express all our gratitude. You knew that the past couple of weeks were hard for me and this gesture gave us so much relief.  You can tell them that everything was perfect and that the kids and I have been truly touched by their generosity.”

“I would like to thank you for the Christmas gifts that we received yesterday. My kids and I were surprised and so happy when we saw the gifts. Mainly my youngest kid who was very emotional.”

“Wow, we just want to say thank you for the Christmas basket we are so happy thank you so much.”

“…have been blessed to receive this Christmas basket prepared with care and kindly brought to our home! “

“I’m missing the words to thank you… we received the basket and the gifts yesterday and I’m really surprised and happy with all of that… every detail is full of love and care for my family. We will open the gifts on the evening of the 24th.”
