Every year, KAC provides Christmas Hampers for many families in our community, for whom Christmas can be an added burden. In fact, we have been doing this for over 30 years! Hampers include a meal, gift cards for ongoing needs, presents for children and many other ideas. And with each hamper goes an invitation to Christmas Eve Service. This year KAC will also be partnering with the Salvation Army Christmas hampers for Merritt Residents.
Merritt Residents: please contact Kamloops Salvation Army, https://www.kamloopssalvationarmy.ca/christmas-hampers-for-merritt-residents/ or call the church office 250-554-1611 ext.205
If you would like to sponsor a hamper this year. Our tradition with hampers has been to provide all the food necessary for Christmas dinner, and a few small gifts for each family member. We have estimated the cost of a hamper for a single person to be $75, and for a small family (mom plus 2 kids) to be $125.
In the past, different groups such as our Prime Time or Life Groups have sponsored hampers, but this year we are encouraging everyone to participate. Please refer to the instruction below outlining ways in which you can help:
