Putting some Joy Back into Christmas For Struggling Families in Calgary

What does the spirit of Christmas mean to you? Celebration? Excitement? Joy?

For many Calgary families, the spirit of Christmas is often a spirit of defeat, disappointment and discouragement. With the rising cost of living and the loss of jobs, many are struggling just to provide the basics for their families. They cannot even begin to think about presents under a tree.

Which is why ClearView is participating in the Christmas Hamper program of the North East Calgary Adopt A Family Society. This program provides personalized hampers for low income families at Christmas (and other holidays). These hampers include a week’s supply of food, fixings for a festive meal, and a gift for each child.

ClearView is adopting three families, and for a month, a portion of all ClearView service calls will be used to purchase the gifts for these three families. ClearView staff will be purchasing the gifts and filling the hampers.
