Christmas Hampers: Christmas Bureau
The Christmas Bureau operates from early November to mid-December. The purpose of the Bureau is to coordinate the efforts of the local organizations that provide Christmas help to those in need. This reduces duplication and maximizes community resources. The Bureau receives names from persons requesting help (food and toys) during the Christmas Season. People/groups/agencies wanting to help can receive names from the bureau. (See You Can Help)
People wishing to request Christmas Help need to fill out a Christmas Bureau Application. If you receive Ontario Works or Ontario Disability SP, you will receive an application in the mail with your assistance cheque.
If you do not receive an application, please contact your worker.
Please note that only ONE application is allowed per household or address. Thank you.
