The Christmas Hamper Project team of the St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Harrow, have successfully delivered hampers to 180 individuals and families in need in the borough this year.
The hampers consisted of food, toiletries, household items, festive treats, age-appropriate gifts for each child, and more.
The team told Harrow Online they would like to thank The Sacred Heart Language College, Salvatorian College and St. Teresa’s School for their kind contributions to the project.
They also thanked all the volunteers who donated items, helped sort, packed and delivered the hampers across Harrow.
Commenting on the work, Team Member Grace said: “After every Christmas giving project whether it is Christmas Dinner or hampers, I feel grateful to be involved in something that offers hope and community spirit to individuals and families that shows they are not alone.”
Debbie Harris, Volunteer Driver for the Christmas Hamper Project said: “I Would like to thank the team for their hard work and support amazing. It was a pleasure to give a little back and people were so so grateful.”
Coordinator of the project, Rabbie said: “It was difficult as we had many more to cater to compared to last year and donations were less due to the current situation. The team did an amazing job, and so did the amazing people who donated generously. We were able to complete all deliveries a week before Christmas. Well done all.”
Fiona G, another volunteer said: “It was a real pleasure to be involved in this project. Seeing the donations coming in from people was very warming. I Enjoyed delivering and seeing the joy on people’s faces when they received their hampers. Genuine appreciation. Patricia and her husband did a great job at organising and getting the task done. A great initiative and would encourage others to become involved next year!”.
