Christmas Hamper Fund 2023 Information
This year is the fiftieth consecutive year that the Christmas Hamper Fund organized by the Knights of Columbus is taking place. As has always been the case, the Knights are asking the Campbell River Community to continue with its support of the effort. The goal is to provide hampers to approximately 1075 homes in the Campbell River area. These hampers contain a generous amount of food suitable for meals on Christmas Day and beyond. The hamper office to receive donations of money or non-perishable food items is located in the Tyee Plaza in a storefront attached to the Coast Discovery Inn just to the right of the lobby doors and will be open beginning Monday, November 20th. The office will be open from 10am until 4pm, Monday to Saturday in November and from 10am until 5pm in December. Note that this year we will not be accepting donations of toys or gifts as they are not included in the 2023 hampers.

Those members of the community who would like to receive a hamper are invited to pick up a registration form at either the Campbell River Food Bank or the Income Assistance Ministry at 833 – 14th Avenue during their hours of operation. The forms will be available starting November 14th. All completed registration forms must be submitted to the Income Assistance Ministry Office and placed in the decorated box found there.
