packing line 5Since 1964, every December, hundreds of volunteers come together to pack special Christmas food hampers and deliver them to thousands of local individuals and families who are living on low income and/or in need during the Holiday season.

Each hamper includes a voucher for a turkey, made possible by the Rotary Club of Kitchener Conestoga’s annual Turkey Drive.

Recipients take their voucher to one of two Turkey Trucks set up in the community to distribute Christmas Hamper turkeys. Volunteers serve at the Turkey Trucks, handing out turkeys to their neighbours in need.
