Christmas Needs for Christmas Day!
80% of our donations come in during the Christmas Season and these generous donations support RAN Mission's operations throughout the year.
As Christmas approaches, we are reminded of the many people who live in poverty in our community. As a response to the overwhelming need, we call on our many volunteers and donors to partner with us in helping to provide for the basic needs as well as adding a little extra love at Christmas time.
Our Christmas day celebration will involve serving a full turkey and fixings meal at
2pm and again at
5pm. Chef Tony puts on an amazing feast for all to enjoy. Volunteers are needed to help serve both meals on Christmas day and donations of fresh vegetables, cranberry sauce and even turkeys are appreciated!
At the end of the meal times, Christmas hampers are distributed to each person who attends containing food, hygiene kits, toques and gloves. Special Christmas gifts are compiled for the children, containing toys and treats to enjoy.
Please consider contributing to the 250 hampers that will be distributed this Christmas.

- Small jars of peanut butter and/or jam (500g)
- Powdered or canned milk
- Canned vegetables
- Dry pasta noodles or rice
