Christmas Hamper Program

Are you looking for ways to spread some cheer this Holiday Season?

The Holidays are not always warm and happy for everyone, especially for women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse. The Holidays can be a particularly difficult time for them. With your help, we can work together and help make the Holiday Season look a little brighter for these women and children.

Every year, Victoria Women’s Transition House organizes the Christmas Hamper Program. This initiative gives women, with or without children, who have accessed our services in the past year, the opportunity to create a wish list of items that will help give them comfort and joy during the Holidays.

Sign up to be a Hamper Donor and be matched with VWTH clients. Our clients could be a single woman, a single mom of young children or teenagers, or an older woman. Those interested should complete our online donor form. Upon receipt of your donation form, we will contact you to provide additional information as well as the type of wish list you’ve requested.

This year’s Christmas Hamper “Weekend” takes place from December 5th to 8th, at our Community Office. Your specific drop-off date, along with office hours, will be included with your wish list package.

Please feel free to contact Jannah Cunningham by phone at 250-380-7527 ext. 110 if you have any questions.

Thank you to our existing donors for your past support and a warm welcome to our new donors!  We hope you will join us in spreading some Christmas cheer to our clients this year.
