Stay Tuned for Details on the 2021 Holiday Hamper Program!
For more than 15 years, BGC Toronto Kiwanis has been providing holiday support to its members and families in need with the assistance of corporate sponsors and individual donors.
With the help of these honourary elves, we are able to provide toys and gifts, clothing, household and hygiene items, food vouchers and other wish list items for families, children and youth that may otherwise go without.
In 2019, our Holiday Hamper program had over 80 corporate and individual donors, and we were able to provide support to 215 families, comprised of 497 children and youth!
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Holiday Hamper will be significantly impacted. This year, we anticipate that the need for assistance may be higher than usual, and TKBGC will do our best to ensure all families have some level of support.
While this holiday season will feel drastically different, we are still connected with our members and their families, and will continue to provide additional services during this time.
Please take a look at the program changes below.
