This past Christmas we were able to sponsor 3 hospital families by donating Christmas hampers to them. Each of these 3 families are from out of town, are unable to work, have a child in a critical care unit and also have other children. Without help Christmas for these families would have been near impossible.
Each of Madden's Christmas hampers included a stocking for each family member, gifts for all the children in the families, pajamas for all members of the family, dry food & candy and over $500 in gift cards (including: old navy, toys r us, Cineplex, earls, indigo, superstore, gas cards and more). We were even able to include an iPod touch (donated by Future Shop in St. Albert) in one of the hampers and a tablet in another hamper!
The gift cards were donated with the intention that the parents would then have the ability to buy some gifts for their children – things their children need or things they know their children really want.
Thank you so much to every person who donated to these hampers. I am sure these hampers gave these families a small reason to smile during a time when smiles are few and far between. Thank you for helping us give these families some happy memories.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year.
