REVERSE ADVENT

From Nov. 24th to Dec 18, fill boxes with suggested items, (or pick your own) to create  “reverse advent” boxes of food and treats.  Items brought in by Dec 19th will be distributed through our Christmas Hampers.

Volunteer during the Christmas Season

We are partnered with Volunteer Lethbridge in order to make sure all the Christmas Hope Organizations have the help they need thus Christmas Season! If you are unsure where you would like to volunteer, please check out Volunteer Lethbridge. If you would like to help out with Interfaith’s daily operations during this busy season, check out our volunteer page to see all the opportunities available, and fill out a volunteer form here.

Come and volunteer in the New Year!

This Christmas, Interfaith Food Bank is partnering with Lethbridge Food Bank, The Salvation Army, Lethbridge Family Services — Angel Tree, My City Care — Shop of Wonders, and Volunteer Lethbridge to ensure every family in our community that requests assistance for Christmas gets the help they need. By working together, we can maximize resources and limit duplication of services. Collectively we aim to provide for 3000 adults and 5500 children. Please join us as we work together to support our community with food, gifts, and Christmas Cheer.

Come Gnome for the Holidays! Select a Gnome from our tree to support individuals or families in need. Purchase gifts for household members and a grocery gift card to cover perishable items added to the hamper provided by the food bank. Gnomes include couples, families with children, and single adults and seniors – who often get missed during the Christmas season. Connect with our office for more program details. For those who do not have time to shop – you can donate financially, and we will take care of everything.

Individual $125

Family of 2 $200

Family of 3-4 $375

Family of 5-6 $525

(includes gifts and grocery gift card)

Gnome for the Holidays does not offer a direct match to a specific family, rather, gifts will be given out to those who match your chosen demographics. This work is done with our partners at Christmas Hope.

We are collecting supplies for our regular monthly food allotments as well as supplies necessary for Christmas meals, turkey/ham and all the fixings, Christmas treats and breakfast and lunch options.

Make a pledge to sponsor a single parent and his/her child(ren) through the colder winter months. These families will be provided with a larger hamper during January, February and March, in addition to receiving a plentiful Christmas Hamper and gifts for their children in December. One cheque covers a family for 4 months!

Sponsor a single parent with one or two children – $400
Sponsor a single parent with three or four children – $500
Sponsor a single parent with five or more children – $600

Do you have someone hard to buy for? Give the gift of giving by donating to Interfaith Food Bank in the name of a friend or family member. We will enclose an acknowledgement of your gift in an attractive Christmas letter for you to mail or hand deliver, and your gift is giving to a family who will benefit from your generosity.

Put a tree up in your office, church, school or business and encourage others to bring food, toys, goodies, or stocking stuffers for children under 17 years of age. No room for a tree? We will provide you with a decorative bin to collect items on behalf of Interfaith Food Bank, and will even pick it up when it is full. Please do not wrap gifts. We would like to have bins returned between December 1st – 9th. Encourage others to be a “Secret Santa” for families in need.
