Help is available this Christmas for low-income Delta residents.
Registration for Deltassist’s Christmas Programs begins Nov. 7. Applicants can register for a Christmas Food Hamper and attendance at the annual Toy Depot to select gifts for their children up to the age of 16.
To complete registration, we require proof of residence in Delta, proof of income and care cards for children registered for the Toy Depot.
Eligible families and individuals must apply in person at Deltassist’s North Delta office (9097 120 St., Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or Ladner office (#200-5000 Bridge St., Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.).
Families that register before Nov. 18 are eligible to enter a draw to receive a free family portrait.
The deadline for registration for the Toy Depot is Dec. 9. Christmas Food Hamper applications will be accepted until Dec. 16.
