The Gift of Love – Thanks Everyone For Your Support

Waterloo Oxford’s Gift of Love was a huge success again this year!

We were so proud to be able to provide 35 full hampers for families in our local community.  In addition we were able to provide gifts for 20 teenage girls, 20 teenage boys and 10 unisex teenage gifts.  The remaining cash donations will be used to purchase much needed diapers for local families with babies and toddlers.

Special thanks go out to the following:

No Frills, in New Hamburg for their donation of fresh vegetables
Weston Bakery, for their donation of crackers and cookies
K-DAC Transport, for providing the transportation for the delivery of the hampers

and to our wonderful staff, students and their families for their continued caring and support for  local families in need.

We are all incredibly lucky to live and work in such a warm and caring community.
