A brighter Christmas for some families receiving food hampers
Over 600 families in apartments of multiple storey buildings or those in the basements of single family homes throughout Delta received a Christmas hand up to celebrate the festive season with two boxes of food each delivered on December 17, 2022 through the Deltassist annual Christmas Hampers program.
Returning after a two-year pandemic haitus -- when food gift cards were distributed instead of food -- the 30+-year-old Christmas Hampers program once again benefitted from the generosity of Delta residents through food drives at schools and community organizations then the pick up, organization and distribution of over 1,500 boxes of food by various community agencies, including the Rotary Club of Ladner. Mike Storey delivers one of two boxes of food to the door of a Delta resident as Jim Burnett looks on.
Christmas Dinner for special needs adults and families, friends
The Weekend Family & Peer Support Group in South Delta, for special needs adults, their families and caregivers, were hosted for the 18th annual Christmas Dinner on December 10, 2022 at the Ladner Community Centre by the Rotary Club of Ladner. 21 Ladner Rotarians and friends prepared days in advance and on the day of the event to serve the traditional Christmas dinner to a group of 50 guests, with entertainment and gift giving sponsored by the Group.
Fundraising success thanks to Delta community and Ladner Rotary members' generosity recognized 
Food for school students and families needing a hand up, planting of trees in Ladner, supporting medical and dental equipment to regions of countries in need are some of the causes supported in 2021-22 by the generosity of Delta residents in supporting fundraising events as well as that of club members in raising a total of CDN$133,000 in 2021-22. Our Rotary District 5040 of 48 clubs recognized this achievement and that of almost CDN$25,000 for The Rotary Foundation's Annual Program Fund and End Polio causes.
