December 1

Many of our families live in poverty. Never is the burden of poverty felt more acutely than over the holiday season. In past years, with the support of a generous community, we have been able to help the neediest families with hampers filled with food and food vouchers, warm clothing, gift certificates and toys. Unfortunately, many of our needy families still do not receive any assistance. If your organization or your workplace traditionally helps children and families over the holiday season, please consider reaching out to Hamilton & District Extend-A-Family. You can help a single mother give her children Christmas dinner. You can help a grandparent living on a fixed income, raising her special needs grandchild, make the season special. If you cannot donate an entire hamper, we welcome gift certificates at discount department stores and local grocery stores. Drop off a toy or an article of warm clothing. All donations will go to a deserving family. If you would like to prepare a hamper, we can give you details—without violating privacy—of the gender, ages and sizes of the children in the family. Please consider sponsoring a struggling family over this special time of the year.
