Sponsoring a hamper is one of many ways you can support the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton. Rather than donating cash, hamper sponsors raise funds to purchase hamper items, assemble the hamper and deliver it to a deserving family in person. 

It was life changing. It felt like Christmas was here. 

– Elaun, Hamper Sponsor 2014

Why sponsor a hamper?

  • It’s a great way for businesses to engage their employees and give back during the holiday season.
  • It’s an opportunity for teachers to get their students involved in a team activity that gives back to the community.
  • It’s an excellent opportunity for those who want to help Edmonton families in a more hands-on way.
  • And, by delivering the hamper, you’ll see the impact you have on a family directly. 

Shawna, a past client of the Christmas Bureau, explains her personal experience with our hamper program:

How to sponsor a hamper:

  • Take some time to review our information below (including our policy and guidelines for hamper sponsorship).
  • Fill out our online sponsor application form expressing your interest in sponsoring a hamper.
  • The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton will find a family or individual that best meets your request.
  • Your designated contact person will receive the contact information for your sponsor family—you will be responsible for finding a mutually suitable time for hamper delivery.
  • After you’ve assembled the hamper, you will deliver the hamper to your sponsor family.

Thanks in large part to our caring and supportive employees, we put together our first 2 hampers for the Christmas Bureau Hamper Program in 2007 and have averaged 16 hampers per year ever since.

We ask that all our potential hamper sponsors take some time to review our policies and guidelines as well as our procedures for sponsoring a food hamper.

Additionally, all hamper sponsors will be required to sign and return an Oath of Confidentiality prior to being provided with client information.
