Rideau Park’s Christmas Cheer program provides assistance to 150 families each year, half
receiving a hamper and half PC gift cards. The cost per family ranges from $60 for one or two
people up to $135 for a family of seven or more. The total budget required to carry out this
program is $15,000. There is a core committee to organize and process the recipients but many
volunteers are needed on December 20 to pack and deliver the hampers. If you can assist please
add your name to the signup sheet on the landing outside the Parlour or call the office at 613-733-3156, x229.
Can’t help with manual labour? Consider donating either on the Sunday offering plate, at the office or online
at CanadaHelps (on the home page) and note Christmas Cheer in the message box.
