Over the holiday season this year our ICLS team wanted to do something special to give back to the community, so when we heard about Halton Women’s Place, “2013 Holiday Hamper Program” we all jumped on board. The family we sponsored included a mom and 3 daughters, ranging in age from 9-17 years old. The family had asked for things ranging from socks and underwear to books, toys, toiletries, movie passes and some more individual interest items as well – I mean what 9 year old girl doesn’t want a Disney Princess Barbie or teenage girl, makeup?
Each member of the ICLS team claimed an item on the list and set out on their gift buying mission, to help make it a special holiday for the family. Once we had all the items collected, Dr. Khanna and Dr. Sapra’s son Rahul volunteered to drive the hamper over to the Halton Women’s Place. They then ensured the Holiday Hamper was delivered to the family in time for the holidays.
This was such a great experience and we are so thankful that we were able to give back to our community in such a special way over the holidays. Here is a picture of some of the ICLS staff with the gifts from the 2013 Holiday Hamper we sponsored.
