HITS Christmas Hamper and Present Project now asking for Referrals
This December HITS will once again be undertaking their Christmas Hamper and present project. This project is only possible through the many volunteers and donors who contribute time and food to make it happen. Because of the extra demand they will be operating the project separate to the Foodbank.
HITS are seeking nominations for individuals and/or families you believe should receive a HITS Christmas Hamper. Unlike their usual foodpacks, their Christmas hampers don’t necessarily go to someone who’s in financial hardship. Instead, they ask that you suggest individuals and families for whom Christmas will be difficult, and for whom a gift of a foodbank hamper might make a difference. The HITS hampers are full of Christmas fare and the usual foodbank items –hampers are tailored according to family numbers and age range.
Because of the extra demand this year HITS does need to know numbers by 5th November, the hampers can be delivered directly by their drivers or if you wish taken to you to distribute. For schools HITS will also provide Christmas presents and will need to know age and gender by 5th November.
