Sam’s Christmas is a long-standing tradition with the sole goal of providing local families in need with a Christmas to remember. In our first year, our vision of providing 20 local families with hot turkey dinners, Christmas baking, bedding, personalized gifts, perishable and non-perishable food hampers, desktop computers, diapers, and new outdoor winter clothing and boots, amongst other items, was successfully brought to fruition for Sam’s Christmas 2010.
As word spread and support grew, Sam’s Christmas 2011 was able to provide 100 families with a Christmas to remember. This year will mark our third year running Sam’s Christmas. It will be upon us before we know it and Project Echo is committed to helping even more families. We have drastically increased the number of families who will receive our support this Christmas to 250 Winnipeg families. We are confident that with your commitment to help, we can once again redefine the holiday season for Winnipeg’s less fortunate families.
Each year, at the completion of Sam’s Christmas, Project Echo volunteers speak of experiencing the emotional surge of making a difference in the lives of others. The life changing difference that Sam’s Christmas makes for everyone involved is evident. We hope to share in the magic and joy of Sam’s Christmas 2012 with you.
