WE NEED YOUR HELP


The Airdrie 1st Club, would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has given to our Christmas Hamper Program in the past.

All of your donations have helped us to make the Holiday Season better for our clients.

Our organization is volunteer run and therefore 100% of your donations go to the people we help.


How Can I Help

Instead of the groceries that we normally receive from donations and our City wide food drive, we are asking for Grocery Store gift cards. Instead of presents we hope to receive gift cards/certificates, preferably from Local Companies and entrepreneurs for the families/individuals to use for present buying.

As a donor you will need to drop off your gift cards by December 17th, 2021 by emailing info@airdrie1st.com. We will have different drop off locations throughout the city -TBA.
