Christmas Basket/Toy Program

Because Hunger Doesn’t Take a Christmas Vacation…

How does it work?

Christmas Baskets are offered in priority to families who are already registered with WIM and who have received food assistance in the past year. However, individuals or families who have not received helped from any West Island food banks are welcome to apply to receive a Christmas basket. Quantities are limited and therefore, advanced registration is mandatory and will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

Our Toy Giveaway is held on a separate day from any of our Christmas basket distribution dates. This gives parents the opportunity to come and choose the toys their children would like. This event is always filled with smiling parents excited to participate in the spirit of Christmas. 

How do I register?

Registration for this event takes place online during the month of October. All registrations must be received by October 31st or they will not be accepted. Proper documentation will be required.

There will be a $5 fee to register for a Christmas basket. The fee must be paid when your Christmas basket is picked up. Please note that you cannot apply to receive a Christmas basket from any other food bank in the West Island.
