Donations of non-perishable food will go a long way to help stock our community cupboards and help to fill food hampers this holiday season.


Sadly, many people in our community struggle daily to feed themselves and their families. Each year our goal is to double the amout collected the previous year at this event. Please do what you can to help.

In partnership with The Salvation Army in Burlington and Good Shepherd in Hamilton, JLHB Holiday Hampers will be located at all the home locations during the Tour weekend.
