James Short Memorial School Christmas Hampers 2018

Most of us imagine a Christmas with gifts under the tree and a table laden with turkey and
all the trimmings. It is a time of joy and celebration. However, for some of the families at
James Short Memorial School it is a different story. Many families are struggling to make ends meet
due to illness, job loss or recent arrival to Canada.

Starting Monday, December 3, 2018, you can help these families and children have a wonderful Christmas
and meet some of their needs right into the New Year. Please see below to find your child’s
or children’s classroom and sign up to help complete the class’s family hamper.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, The Christmas Hamper Committee
