THE PROGRAM

This program provides personalized hampers for low income families at Christmas. Sponsors are recruited and they purchase gift cards or give a monetary donation to help recipients. Gift cards will be given to families to purchase groceries for Christmas meals, as well as gifts for each immediate family member. This will help brighten what might otherwise be a bleak holiday for a qualified, individual or family.


Since 1977, the Airdrie Lioness Club has helped many families in need enjoy the Christmas Season.

Should you find yourself needing our assistance, please do not hesitate to apply by using the self referral form on our website.


Sponsor a Family

With the concerns surrounding COVID again this year we are choosing to put our community 1st by, once again, being a “Gift Card” hamper for our qualified recipients, we are asking donors that would normally Adopt a Family, we are asking that you Adopt People. Maybe you want to adopt teens, by purchasing Gift Cards from stores they would enjoy shopping or a mall gift certificate. This can apply to teens, children, infants, seniors, or maybe you want to make up a family of 5, including 2 parents, and 3 teens.

Sponsors may be companies, organizations, individuals and families. If your budget allows please consider sponsoring a larger family or several smaller ones. Or perhaps you only have the budget for one gift card or a small monetary donation, every little bit helps. We count on our sponsors to make this program happen.

As a gift card 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 around the city, TBA.


Donate

Monies received are used to purchase gift cards to be gifted to the families. Cash donations are accepted by mail. Donations can also be accepted through ATB Cares. All financial donations of $20.00 or more are eligible for an Official Tax Receipt.

Every little bit helps when it comes to ensuring that parents who are struggling can provide a Merry Christmas for their children. We usually run short on gifts for adults and teens, please consider purchasing gift cards specifically with them in mind.

Refer to the Donations section on the FAQ for Sponsors page for more information.
