Grigg Insurance’s Abby McKillop, said she and Shayden Lasher were inspired by Whitecourt RE/MAX, which ran a small business challenge for the Whitecourt Christmas Hamper, encouraging businesses to donate a gift for families in need.

Business community members could bring in a gift and nominate another to donate.

McKillop said more than 20 businesses participated, along with farm families and other community members.

“I don’t think we really expected it to be this big,” McKillop said.

Most of the donations were taken to the food bank Dec. 16.
