26 Families in the Okanagan-Shuswap Receive a Christmas Hamper

Vernon, BC — KingFisher Boats is spreading Christmas cheer once again this holiday season. The volunteer run social committee acted as Santa’s little helpers, making Christmas hampers for 26 local families with a valued donation of over $20,000.

“We launched this drive in 2016 to massive success” stated Sarah Gregory, Senior HR Manager. “Our 145 employees live throughout the Okanagan-Shuswap and they anonymously nominate members of their community.”

Each Christmas hamper has three portions; groceries, children’s gifts, and a larger family gift. The social committee has fundraising events throughout the year which include a silent auction and 50/50 draws with proceeds going directly to the Christmas Hamper donation fund.

“KingFisher Boats has strong roots in our community, as we continue to grow it is more important than ever to continue to give back” says Gregory. “Between the nominations, shopping and wrapping our employees get so engaged in the spirit of giving.”

The hampers are set to be delivered December 21.
