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.

Come and volunteer in the New Year!

Thank you to everyone who contributed in making Christmas Hope such a huge success this year! Through Christmas Hope’s agency partnership, we assisted 2500 adults and more than 5000 children with food hampers complete with Christmas fixings, and toy bundles for those 17 years of age and younger so they had something special under the tree on Christmas morning. The help our community provided this year went above and beyond our expectations, and we cannot thank you enough for all that you have done.

 

On behalf of Interfaith Food Bank and those we serve, thank you for your support.  We wish you and yours all the best for a happy, healthy 2022.

This Christmas, Interfaith Food Bank is partnered 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 requested assistance for Christmas got the help they need. By working together, we maximized resources and limited duplication of services. Collectively we aimed to provide for 2000 adults and 4500 children. Please join us as we work together to support our community with food, gifts and Christmas Cheer.

It’s never too late to give. Donations and assistance provided to Interfaith Food Bank over the holiday season made it possible to ensure everyone had a bright Christmas, and we sincerely thank you! But our work hasn’t ended. Families need to put food on the table every day, and we are expecting to see demand continuing to increase in the New Year. Please consider supporting our activities through 2022.

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.
