Celebrating Holiday Favourites: Junior Chamber Edmonton and Christenson Developments Present the Holiday Hamper Celebration Event

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 23, 2015) - JCI Edmonton and Christenson Developments will be holding a celebration event for the Holiday Hamper Program tomorrow evening with the hope of securing additional donations and supporters.

The event is open to the public and tickets are free, but donations and support secured at the event will help purchase holiday favourites, like turkeys, for the hampers. JCI Edmonton has met its goal to help 800 Edmonton families and now needs to call on the community to help raise over $10,000 required to provide turkeys for all the hampers.

"We are working hard to make sure that we are able to provide the full Christmas experience for 800 Edmonton families in need, including a dinner with all their holiday favourites. In order to realize this goal, we still need support for the Turkey Fund and are hoping to secure more support at the event," commented Chris Curtola from JCI Edmonton.
