Dear Community Member,
We are seeking community support for our 2019 Holiday Hamper Program. For more than a decade, we have provided support and much needed cheer to at least 40 families in our community each holiday season.
Since 2009, we have seen increasing challenges for a wide spectrum of our community members. This includes a general increase in the number of families and new immigrant families in need of support (food, clothing, and access to services) as well as annual increases in the number of families experiencing more significant barriers.
More specifically, we have seen an increase in the number of adults and children experiencing poverty. We regularly provide food bank, bread and produce to low income families in our area, and have a long waiting list for this program.
Many people are the working poor, while others are not able to work because of disabilities or other issues. Some are in very tenuous situations and are on the verge of homelessness.
*An example of the kind of support we are seeking is if a Family is the size of 2 to 3 members they would receive a $50 gift card, or a Family Size of 4 to 5 would receive a $75 gift card. Any donation would help toward the families.
We hope that you can support this project by giving cash, cheque, or gift card donation or making a donation to the Frog Hollow Website www.froghollow.bc.ca. The deadline for donations is December 20th, 2019.
