Kincardine Community Services Association (KCSA) is kicking off its 2018 Christmas Hamper Program. The program continues to rely on the generous support of the community.


Families and individuals who are in need of assistance this Christmas who wish to receive a hamper should contact their social worker, counsellor, school principal, health professional, minister or helping agency no later than Nov. 30 to have their name put on the list. There are posters around town encouraging those in need to get their names in. It has been the practice of the Christmas Hamper Program to have these third party referrals to maintain the integrity of the program.
