The Big Lakes Christmas Angels program provides a Christmas hamper to qualifying Big Lakes County residents, containing groceries for Christmas dinner and breakfast, as well as a wrapped gift for children residing in the household under 16 years of age. The program is completely funded by donations and therefore can only provide hampers equal to the amount of donations. This means that not everyone that applies will get a hamper.

Application Requirements

All members of the household must provide the following:

  • Valid identification and Alberta Health Care number
  • Proof of residence (such as a utility bill)
  • 2021 Tax Return or Notice of Assessment

If the household financial situation has changed in the past year, please also include:

  • Record of Employment or 3 months of your most recent bank statements
  • 3 most recent pay stubs or a letter from your employer

Applicants must meet all financial criteria to qualify. Only residents of Big Lakes County will be considered.

Applications must be completed with a Big Lakes FCSS employee. Please schedule an appointment with your local FCSS worker.

Application deadline is Friday, December 9, 2022NO EXCEPTIONS


This program is completely funded by donations. We are asking for contributions of cash to purchase groceries and toys needed to assemble hampers. 

Donations are accepted at the Big Lakes County High Prairie Admin office, the Kinuso hamlet office, and all FCSS offices. They can also be mailed to Box 239 High Prairie, AB T0G 1E0. Tax receipts will be issued.
