Christmas Hampers for QMS Families: Your Help Needed


Christmas Hampers for QMS Families: Your Help Needed

For several years, we have been providing Hampers to support families during the holidays.  With support from our QMS families, our local Temple (Guru Nanak Toy Drive), our StrongStart Program and our extended Queensborough Community, we have been able to fill boxes with food and toys for local families.  This year we would like to continue that tradition and need your help.

Between December 01 and 11, we are asking families to consider dropping off food, new socks or toys (for children between the ages of 3 and 13).  Items can be sent to school with your child(ren) and  placed in the boxes (labeled Hamper Drive) in the front hallway, directly in front of the office.

We will sort, group and wrap items.  The local firefighters will be delivering these hampers to families on December 15th.  If you can donate anything on the list below, that would be appreciated by our Hamper Drive Committee.

Typical Items Needed to Fill the QMS Hamper Boxes:

Juice, Salad Dressing, Pickles, Pancake Mix, Syrup, Chocolate Chips, Stuffing, Mayonnaise, Gingerbread House Kit, Icing Sugar, Candy Canes, Cranberry Sauce, Marshmallows, Tuna, Chilli, Toys, Clothes (Ages 4-14), socks, soup, pasta, and cereal
