Home: Guidelines for Hampers

Last year, 809 families applied to the Christmas Bureau for assistance. The majority of these families were adopted by individual families, businesses and organizations who provided food hampers and gifts for their adopted families. Applicants, who are not sponsored, receive food vouchers and gifts directly from the Langley Christmas Bureau.

Sponsors are expected to have hampers delivered on or before December 18, 2013. We ask that all Sponsors make contact with their adopted families by December 13 and set a delivery date/time.
