Christmas Hampers 

We are excited to be participating in Christmas Hampers again this year! Last year, we matched families directly with sponsors in our parish. This was a great success and we’ll be following the same format this year! 

As a parish community, we are hoping to provide 40 hampers for families in need this Christmas. We invite you to sponsor a family as an individual or as a team. Sponsor a family today and make a difference in someone’s Christmas.   

Email the parish at outreach@annunciation-ottawa.com indicating your wish to sponsor a hamper and the family size.
