Cakes & Cookies Campaign

This campaign typically runs from October until the first or second week of December.

Going into the holiday season, the Hamilton-Halton Chapter offers products to the general public that are ideal for gift-giving, including:

  • Fruit cakes,
  • Mixed nut trays,
  • Fudge,
  • Truffles, and
  • A variety of gift baskets.

During this campaign, orders are accepted until the deadline (usually the end of November).

Once the products are received, they are then separated based on every individual's order. They're then either delivered or set aside for pick-up.
