Christmas Toy Drive and Food Hampers
Could you use some help this Christmas?
Registration for the Christmas Programs Opens Monday November 7th. Eligible families must apply in person at Deltassist offices. Click here to learn more and to find links to the Registration Forms.
During the Christmas holidays we are always overwhelmed by our supportive community, who bring hope to those who need a healing presence.
Deltassist in partnership with volunteers and the service clubs of Delta distributes hundreds of Christmas Hampers and thousands of Christmas Toys each year. Hundreds of volunteers make each Christmas better as they have done for over the last 25+ plus years. An amazing testimony to the spirit and culture of Delta.

Fill a Stocking
The Tsawwassen Town Centre Fill a Stocking program concluded on December 2nd. If you would like to donate toys to Deltassist’s annual Toy Depot we would gratefully accept them at Deltassist’s Ladner or North Delta offices.
A child in need will have a better Christmas! Every year Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall hosts a Stocking for Kids program for Deltassist. Empty stockings are available for pick up from Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall. Please call the Mall’s promotion office at 604-943-1735 to arrange a pick up or fill your own stocking and drop it off at Deltassist’s office.
Donate Toys and Gifts
Bring a smile to a child’s face this Christmas. Gifts for teens, baby toys, books, games – donations will all be distributed at Deltassist’s annual toy depot. This year’s toy shop for children from birth to 16 years of age will be open from December 13 to 15, 2016. It would be greatly appreciated if donations were dropped off at a Deltassist office by December 9th. However, donations will be accepted into the New Year and kept for distribution next year.
As always, we are most in need of donations for infants and teens. See Teen Gift Suggestions.
Donate Food for Hampers
Each year Deltassist, in partnership with the service clubs of Delta, distributes food hampers to low income families and seniors in our communities.
Help Delta families and seniors celebrate the holidays with food on the table.
Please donate non-perishable food items for the Christmas Hampers. Staples we are most in need of include breakfast cereals, tinned ham and chicken, juice, tinned hearty meals (stew), peanut butter, rice, pasta sauce, and hot chocolate. Please note that we cannot accept expired or homemade goods.
Food can be dropped off at both Deltassist locations.
Sponsor A Family
If you’d like more hands-on involvement, our sponsored hamper program may be a good fit. Prepare a personalized food hamper for a family in our Christmas program. Families are selected at random and can only be sponsored once every three years. While the program is anonymous, we will provide you with information such as the gender and ages of all children as well as food likes and dislikes.
Sponsor a family today by calling our Christmas Coordinator at 604-594-3455 or by filling in our Contact Form.
Display an Angel Tree
Is your workplace or business looking to be more involved at Christmas? Consider participating in Deltassist’s Angel Tree Program. Display your Christmas tree with angels made by students in Delta. Each angel has a gender and age of a child on the back. Your clients, members or staff can take one (or as many as they want) and donate a toy for that child. Deltassist volunteers are available to pick up toys as needed.
Participating is as simple as contacting our Christmas Coordinator at 604-594-3455 or by filling in our Contact Form.
Host a Toy Drive for Teens
Every year we experience a shortage of gifts for teens. Help us ensure that no teen goes without gifts this Christmas. Host a toy drive for teens. See Teen Gift Suggestions.
Bring a smile to the face of a thirteen to sixteen year old and contact 604-594-3455 or send an email via our Contact Form.
