Christmas Gift Bag Campaign

Posted November 1, 2018 by

The Christmas season will soon be upon us and the Christmas Gift Bag Campaign is getting underway.  

We hope you will consider supporting this valuable program.  Each year we hear from CCSC guests how grateful they are to receive this gift and that, for many, it is the ONLY gift they receive. For this reason we ask that you include new, good quality items in their original packages. Please note that there is no need for the items to be gift wrapped. Christmas Gift Bags can be delivered in new, reusable shopping bags.


  • One pair of warm gloves
  • One pair of thick socks
  • Regular size shampoo (not conditioner)
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste and/or dental floss
  • Shaving cream for men/box of tampons or pads for women
  • Shower gel, body wash, or soap
  • Antiperspirant/deodorant
  • Package of 5-10 disposable razors
  • Boxed candy or boxed chocolate (not homemade)
  • Small jar of instant coffee, box of tea bags, or tin/box of hot chocolate (no coffee pods)

Please contact me if you wish to participate in this year’s Christmas Gift Bag Campaign and let me know how many Christmas bags you wish to provide. This year’s final delivery date is Friday December 14th.  

Deliveries can be made to Chalmers Downtown (41 Macdonell Street) on Tuesdays between 9 am and 3 pm, Wednesdays between 5 and 8 pm and Fridays between 8 am and 3 pm. New this year:  Deliveries can also be made to our Chalmers West location (the portable behind Three Willows Church – 577 Willow Road) on Tuesday December 11th between 9 am and 12 pm and Wednesday December 12th between 5 pm and 7 pm. Please note that there is plenty of parking at our Chalmers West location.

Please feel free to call me with any questions.  Thank you for your support.
