Holiday Hamper Project Every year starting in November, the Addictions Intervention Counselling and the Community Services Worker programs in Barrie combine their efforts into a community fundraiser project to provide toys for underprivileged children affected by mental health and addiction. The Samaritan House provides the coordinator, Stefani Hayes, with a list of names and a wish list from seven different children each year. From that list, the students brainstorm fundraising initiatives to provide at least three gifts for each child. In prior years, we have made an effort to provide a toy, clothing and non perishable food items.To date, the Holiday Hamper project has raised over $9, 000, and an overwhelming amount of toys thanks to the community effort and donations from the local fire departments and generous students.
