Working together, ḰELSET students, staff and PAC are creating Christmas hampers to support families in our ḰELSET community.

There are three ways to contribute.

  • Gift cards or monetary donations

We recommend $25 gift cards to Thrifty Foods, Save On Foods, Red Barn or Walmart. Cash or cheque donations (made out to School District 63) in any denomination. Funds will go towards purchasing items to complete the hampers or directly to the families.

  • Gifts for families

Our goal is for each family member to have one gift to open on Christmas morning. See suggestions and sign up for the gift(s) you wish to purchase here: 

Please ensure gifts are new, un-wrapped and be sure to label them with the description on Sign Up Genius.
