Vernon, BC – It’s year three for KingFisher Boats Christmas Hamper Gift Giveaway program. Thanks to business partners and annual fundraising, KingFisher’s social committee is spreading joy to 27 families with Christmas food essentials, gifts for children and family, from over $20,000 in donated goods.

“KingFisher has strong roots in our community. We are proud to give back once again. The Okanagan-Shuswap is home to our 160 employees.  Thanks to their contributions, we are able to support our community in a meaningful way,” says Sarah Gregory, HR Director.

KingFisher’s social committee raises funds with events including, a silent auction, 50/50 draws with funds going to the Christmas Hamper fund. KingFisher’s business partners also play a key role in gathering the goodies. Families were selected through anonymous nominations by Team KingFisher and Community Futures.

The hampers are delivered just in time for the holidays on December 22nd.
