Christmas Giving

Nov 07, 2019

The Annual FCSS Christmas Giving Campaign is underway!

As part of this campaign, eligible families are given vouchers to purchase groceries for Christmas through the FCSS Fill-a-Fridge program.  We are asking for your help to ensure the success of this program. Fill-a-Fridge is 100% funded by your generous community donations.

For the first time in 2018, Fill-a-Fridge experienced a serious shortfall.  Grocery vouchers given out exceeded donations received.  A record 600+ individuals and families accessed the FCSS Fill-a-Fridge program.  This year the target for the 2019 FCSS Fill-a-Fridge program is $55,000.  With your help, we can meet the need for food in our community.  Every dollar contributed will help.

Once again we will be partnering with the Lacombe Kinsmen Club to offer Santa's Anonymous.  Cash donations will be accepted at the Lacombe FCSS office as well as new, unwrapped gift donations. Christmas morning will be sweeter because of you.

The Christmas Giving Campaign reaches across Lacombe County as we partner with FCSS offices in Alix, Bentley and Clive. We urge you to support these two local programs this giving season.

Donations can be made online: @lacombefcss.net, in person or by mail.          Charitable tax receipts will be issued for all donations of $10 or more.

Together we can make life better.                                                    2019 Clive FCSS Christmas Giving Poster.png
