2017 Christmas Gift Bag Campaign at Chalmers Community Services Centre

The Christmas Gift Bag list for CCSC is attached. Anita Nichol is our church contact.  Please let her know if you are planning to prepare and donate gift bags so we can let Chalmers know how many to expect from us.

White gift Sunday is December 10th and that is when we collect them.

Thanks for considering taking part in this project. For some it is the only gift they get.


From Chalmers:

Dear Supporters,

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

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 8th.

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

Sarah Dermer, Program and Volunteer Coordinator
