Sponsor A Family This Christmas!

Sponsors are responsible for delivering the hamper and gifts to the Lioness Hamper Depot no later than 8:00 PM on Thursday, December 12, 2019

If you would like to ensure that Christmas is a special time for one of the over 350 families that register with us every year we would love to hear from you!

Each year we match Sponsors with one or more families. The Sponsors provide a Christmas meal, gifts and groceries for a week to brighten an otherwise bleak holiday for a struggling individual or family.  (Please refer to the Frequently asked Questions for Sponsors for information on average adoption costs per family size.)

For those who prefer, a cash donation can be given. The Airdrie Lioness will then shop for and complete the hamper on your behalf.

To simplify the grocery shopping, we provide a complete list of items to be included in each food hamper. Along with the food hamper, our Sponsors also provide gifts for each family member ($50.00 maximum value per person).

As a Sponsor you are able to choose the size of family you would like to adopt. Once we have matched you with an individual or family, you will be given a Sponsorship Package, which includes a grocery list, Gift Suggestions, and information on the age(s) and gender(s) of each family member in order to help you to select appropriate gifts for the family.

We realize that sometimes Sponsors collect a lot more for their adopted family than expected. If this should happen, we would ask that you consider adopting another family or dropping off any excess at the Airdrie Lioness Christmas Hamper Depot so that we can put it toward another family this Christmas. The more families you are able to help, the more Christmas spirit you are able to share.

If you, your Company/Organization are able to adopt a Family for the Lioness Adopt-a-Family Christmas Hamper Program this year, please complete the Sponsor Form and email it to us at

Financial Donations:

The Airdrie Lioness Adopt-a-Family Christmas Hamper Program greatly appreciates financial donations as the monies received are used to purchase groceries, toys, gift certificates and food vouchers for families to enjoy over the holiday season.

Donations help to lift the burden off the shoulders of families struggling to provide a Merry Christmas for their children. Your generosity allows Airdrie's less fortunate children to experience the joy and warmth that every child deserves.

Please feel free to drop off any size of donation to our depot in December. Please call: 403-660-1569 to ensure the depot is open before you deliver your donation. Donations can also be accepted through ATB Cares
