Fairview's new wellness program has seen the company divide into four teams, tasked with giving back to the community.
Team one delivered non-perishable items, snacks, hams, poppers, children's gifts and tea towels to LINC for the hampers.
Fairview employee Helen Hunter said that the first team chose LINC to donate to because of their helping spirit.
"We wanted to help local people after COVID, and we know that LINC actually helps people," she said.
Fairview ran a 'Funnings Sizzle' for their 45 Lithgow employees to raise money to buy the food for the hampers.
"It was a themed lunch and management generously matched our donations," she said.
Ms Hunter said that the items were chosen because she knew that LINC had staple foods.
"It is nice to be able to give back to those who can't afford it, through no fault of their own," she said.
Ms Hunter said that residents will get two of all the speciality items that Fairview provided.
"One is for yourself and other is to give either as a gift to friends or family or someone else in need," she said.
"It is not just us giving to one person but spreading it all out for Christmas and giving joy to the community."
