It is an overwhelming experience as the community of Cloverdale comes together to serve those
in need. Yet every year for the past 20 years as the needs have increased, the outpouring of
support in food, gifts and cash donations has matched or exceeded expectations!
In 2011 the CCHP provided upwards of 230 hampers that included over 325 adults and 200 children. More than $50,000 in food and cash donations were raised. Each hamper included non-perishable food and sundry items, vegetables, a turkey or ham, dairy products as well as toys/gifts for children and a grocery gift card for each family or individual in an attempt to carry them through the Christmas season.
The Hamper Program is the combined effort of many local churches, schools as well as a host of businesses and public organizations; collecting donations and volunteering to organize and build hampers for those in need within our community.
For one Saturday each December a community will come together to serve the families and individuals of Cloverdale that need help and joy to get them through the Christmas season. The day is filled with tears, laughter, and opportunities to connect with those who come that day.
Once again we would like to give you the opportunity to be a part of this great venture by asking for your assistance with cash donations, food, merchandise and/or gifts. Cash donations will receive a tax deductible receipt at year end.
No donation is too big or too small – it all adds up and it is all sincerely appreciated by the beneficiaries, who would have a colder Christmas without it.
