Let’s make a Difference

Christmas is a time to pause and reflect on the important things around us. Things like joy, love, family, giving, compassion and community. We want Christmas to be a happy time for everyone, especially for children. Help us relieve stress and anxiety put on families during this time of year. Let us work together towards a goal to give each child in our community a smile on their face on Christmas Day.

Donate Funds

The Christmas season can be a difficult time for many. When you donate to our organization, you make sure that a child has a gift under the tree, a family has enough food for their holiday dinner, and a caregiver can focus on the things that truly matter. It is easiest to give online, using our secure DONATION page. Tax receipts for donations received are issued in January of each year. Donations can be made by cash; cheque; PayPal, or e-Transfer.

Donate Toys

The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society accepts unwrapped new toys, gift cards and monetary donations. All gifts are appreciated. Your generosity means the world to us. Thank you.

Items can be delivered to the Christmas Hamper office.

Donate to Kid’s Only

A unique part of the program allows the children to select a gift for their parent(s)/guardian(s). Our volunteers wrap these items for the children to place under the tree at their homes. Please consider donating if you have any unopened items, such as a new scarf, gloves, gift cards, sports memorabilia, etc. The smiles on the children’s faces when selecting the gifts are heartwarming. Christmas wrapping supplies are also helpful.

Items can be delivered to the Christmas Hamper office.

Donate Used Items

We are delighted that Rudolph’s Recycle Gift Shoppe will be open again to families who the Christmas Hamper Society has accepted.

Gently used items accepted include Toys, puzzles, games, books, crafts, decorations, clothing, coats, housewares, blankets and bedding, towels, jewellery, and toiletries. We cannot accept furniture, stuffed toys, previously used underwear and socks. Please note that we have an abundance of newborn clothing.

Items can be delivered to the Christmas Hamper office.

The Good Neighbour Program allows families and businesses to sponsor a family and we have always been blessed with the generosity of the local community. Please note that applications to sponsor families will be accepted up to the 2nd of December.

Download the application here. Once completed, you will soon be contacted by our office with instructions and a matched family. Your care means so much and will help brighten the lives of families within our community.

Thank You For Your Support!

West Coast Express Santa Train

2022: Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December

Port Haney departs10.19 a.m
Maple Meadows departs 10.25 a.m.
Pitt Meadows departs 10.29 a.m

The return train departs Vancouver at 5 p.m. on both days and returns as follows – Pitt Meadows 5:44pm, Maple Meadows 5:48pm and Port Haney at 5:54pm.

Once in Vancouver, you can enjoy a day of holiday sights and sounds before returning home.

What makes the Santa Train special is that West Coast Express gives you a free WCE ticket when you bring along a new, unwrapped toy donation (worth about the same as a WCE pass) for your community Christmas Hamper. It’s a great way to give to those in need in your community and have a fun-filled day at the same time.
