We Need Your Help

As we approach this weekend of “Giving Thanks”, we, the Airdrie Lioness 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 almost 100% of your donations go to the people we help.

It goes without saying our 2020 Hamper Program is changing for a number of reasons
  1. The City of Airdrie donated facility (Old Main Street Fire Hall) normally used to run the program during the months of November and December is being used for Covid19 testing by AHS
  2. Most of our Volunteers are seniors and are therefore at a much greater risk of serious illness and the majority of them, understandably, do not want to place themselves in harms way
  3. COVID19 restrictions dictated by Alberta Health Services to run our program, even if we could find another space, are so restrictive it would make the sorting, filling and delivering of our Hampers almost impossible within the time frame we need to do it
After much deliberation over the summer months,

We anticipate that this year’s needs will be greater than ever. It was decided the only way our Christmas Hamper Program could go ahead, would be to give gift Cards only, to our recipients. This will make the delivering of the modified Holiday Hampers easier and less stressful for both our clients and our Lionesses Volunteers.

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. We hope that you will consider donating what you can whether that is a single gift card or adopting a family of 8.

We are still asking that if you are looking to sponsor a hamper for a family that you donate the following amounts

Size of Family Total for Monetary Donation
Or Total of Gift Cards
1 $325.00 to $350.00
2 $375.00 to $425.00
3 $450.00 to $500.00
4 $500.00 to $600.00
5 $625.00 to $750.00
6 $675.00 to $825.00
8 $800.00 to $1000.00

Please support as many Airdrie and surrounding area businesses as possible
