Holiday Hampers – Salvation Army

Salvation Army Hampers

Typically, the Grange Hill East Neighbourhood Group assists residents in need of holiday support by hosting local application sessions. This exceptional year, those requesting a hamper must sign up in person at a designated site. The following offers a summary of what to expect.

In 2020, hampers will be replaced by gift cards for everyone’s safety. Toy hampers will still be on offer for those with children. Gift cards will be distributed in amounts of:

  • $50 for 1 to 2 people per household
  • $100 for 3 to 4 people per household
  • $150 for 5 or more people per household

When to Apply: Between November 4 and December 9, 2020 – various sites across the city. Timing differs for each site.  

Where to Apply: Please review the linked poster  to find the best date and time for you.
