Community Christmas Hampers - Update
ALL is happy to announce that again this year the community Christmas hamper has begun and is on its way to being up in full swing. Consideration of conducting the food drive hamper program or the gift card version of the hamper program was completed, and it was decided that again for the 2021 holiday season the hamper will be done the gift card way. This decision was made due to some of the barriers still present in running a food drive program as such in the current state of the pandemic.

On a positive note, in choosing the gift card version of the program this means:

  1. We are still able to provide families in need with the food and supplies they require to feed their families this holiday season.

  2. People and businesses of the community can help keep food on the plates of those living in their communities and surrounding areas by their monetary support,

  3. We can do so while continuing to support local businesses in the process.

  4. The entire program is conducted in a safe manner for all parties.

  5. Registration for a hamper and monetary donations in support of the program will be accepted from now until December 10th, 2021.

*To request a hamper please call the hamper request line at 431-866-8366.*

Eligible recipients must live in the north-east area outside of the City of  Winnipeg and Selkirk. Donations can be made via the website at abundantlifelutheran.ca, in person on Worship Sunday or mailed in via cheque to the church. Please make all cheques out to Abundant Life Lutheran Church and note that it is for the hamper program so it can be allocated correctly. (Donation receipts will be provided same as regular donations).

Gift cards will be purchased and allocated to recipients shortly after collection deadline. See poster for more information on the 2021 Program.

Thank you in advance to the volunteers and donors who make this program a continued success.
