Planet Drugs Direct Spreading Cheer with the Christmas Cheer Board

Holiday donations provide a variety of items for families who are in need of assistance. Through the Christmas Cheer Board, low-income families and families with financial hardships receive hampers that are filled with food, toys and other goods. Employees from Planet Drugs Direct have provided a substantial amount of support for the holiday drive.

The Christmas Cheer Board began in 1919 to support the surviving family members of soldiers who died during World War I, the Christmas Cheer Board has continued its mission to help needy families within the Winnipeg, Manitoba community. The organization was formed via area churches to provide less fortune families with an array of holiday items. Led by the executive director, Kai Madsen, the Christmas Cheer Board prepares approximately 19,000 hampers for local recipients. At Planet Drugs Direct, our employees are excited about the holiday drive for the Christmas Cheer Board.

As a community based organization, the Christmas Cheer Board relies on area residents to help during the holiday season. Thousands of school aged children and volunteers dedicate countless hours to pack hampers for the holiday. Each hamper contains food such as a turkey, fruit, vegetables and other items. Drivers and package handlers are needed to take the holiday hampers to needy families throughout the Winnipeg, Manitoba area. Planet Drugs Direct and its employees are helping the Christmas Cheer Board this year.

Planet Drugs Direct will present a hamper to the Christmas Cheer Board for the family that we sponsor. Using a collective effort to reach our annual sponsorship goals, employees from Planet Drugs Direct have supplied toys, food, canned goods and other festive items. The generosity from employees at Planet Drugs Direct reflects a culture of caring and sharing. Employees of Planet Drugs Direct are highly supportive of our fundraising mission for the Christmas Cheer Board. Participation and the event is an honor for the company and for our employees. Towards the end of December, Planet Drugs Direct will present a hamper to the family that we support in cooperation with the Christmas Cheer Board.

Planet Drugs Direct plans to continue the sponsorship for a local family through the Christmas Cheer Board. Our employees have been bringing in all types of canned goods, toys and food to support the current holiday drive. With each item that is presented, Planet Drugs Direct and its employees will spread some cheer with the Christmas Cheer Board.


What we have collected thus far for the hamper! Minus the printer – that’s ours! Haha!
