Christmas Bureau

Christmas Bureau

What is IT?

The Christmas Bureau is a unique and meaningful way to ensure children and seniors experience the magic of Christmas. Families with children and seniors will receive a gift and a Christmas meal. Christmas Neighbours provide direct support to families and are made up of groups, businesses or families from the community at Christmas.  The experience is completed with the heart-warming delivery of the items directly to the family. Alternatively, for those that are not matched, families will be invited to the toy room to shop for their child. The toy room is generously stocked by our community.

Lisa is a single mother of twins under 2, with another baby on the way. She comes into the Food Bank for groceries, but more importantly for the diapers, wipes, baby cereals, and jar food that are so necessary for her little one. The larger her twins grow, the more expensive diapers get, making it very hard for Lisa to make ends meet while surviving solely on income assistance and child tax. Recently, Lisa expressed to our volunteers how grateful she is for the provision of baby supplies at the Food Bank. “I don’t know what I’d do without the support from the Food Bank for diapers and baby food” she said. With another little one soon to be born, Lisa felt extra appreciative that she has somewhere to come to provide such practical support for herself and her kids.

The Starfish Pack Program was created in response to teachers hearing the cry of their students.  Teachers were heartbroken to hear their students were coming to class on Monday morning hungry, reporting that they had not eaten over the weekend.

We are currently delivering Starfish Packs to over 730 children throughout Abbotsford

How it Works

$20.38 fills one Starfish Pack. $693 fills a Starfish Pack every weekend of the school year.
The Starfish Pack Program would not be possible without the generosity of our community.  Each week volunteers pack two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and healthy snacks into the backpacks for the weekend. Then the packs are delivered to the elementary school each week for the whole school year.

How it works
