Sponsor a Family

What it means to Sponsor a Family


Put a smile on a child’s face this Christmas by sponsoring a family.  Recruit the help of your family, friends, colleagues or community groups, to provide a hamper for low-income families with children 18 years or younger, low-income seniors 65 or older, or for a low-income person with disabilities.

To register as a sponsor, you may fill out the secure online form Sponsor a Family form.

Sponsors are eligible to receive a tax receipt. Download, print and complete the tax receipt request form. Attach all your original sales receipts for your hamper purchases. Be sure to include the receipt or photocopy of the Grocery Gift Cards. Mail the form and receipts to the Family Services of the North Shore office prior to December 31st or drop off your completed form at the Christmas Hamper Exchange.

Please note we are unable to allocate portions of a receipt to more than one contributor. Original receipts must accompany each contributor's Tax Receipt Request Form.
