Dauphin, Canada

Adopt a Family is a part of the Christmas Hamper program for the Dauphin area.

Hampers get filled with items from a basic grocery list, Christmas gifts for as many kids as there are in the family, and whatever else you feel should go in the hamper.

Adopt a Family works with the Friendship Centre’s angel tree and the food bank.

They try to adopt half of the people that apply for hampers, so the food bank and angel tree only have to fill the other half of the hampers.

Laverne Hudson, Coordinator of Adopt a Family, says you won’t know who you are buying for, just the number of people and ages of the kids for gifts.
