Summary of the Initiative

We identify all the families that have financial challenges in the seven communities of the Ungava Bay.
We then, according to the number of family members in each targeted family, we prepare them a Christmas basket.
All the Christmas baskets are similar in content except for the quantities. Quantities are standardised accordingly to the number of members in each family.
The project is managed from Kuujjuaq. The purchases are done in each community. The social workers and the wellness workers do the distribution in the communities except in Kuujjuaq where the nutritionist of the Ungava Tullatavik Health Center (in charge of the Christmas baskets project) do the purchasing and the distribution for Kuujjjuaq families. In total we serve approximately 250 families in the seven communities. The project is very well received by the communities.
