Charitable OrganizationFamily, Community & Non-Profit
Since 1940, the Christmas Bureau has maintained one tradition - providing a festive meal and coordination of Christmas giving to Edmontonians in need at Christmastime through the promotion of the spirit of Christmas caring and sharing in the City of Edmonton.
Non-denominational and accessible to all Edmontonians in need, we are a connector of over 120 social service agencies providing those in need a one stop application process for Christmas services. Client information is compiled by the Christmas Bureau into a database to provide food hampers or food gift cards to accommodate all dietary needs through the Food Program; gift cards for teens aged 13 to 17 years through the Adopt-A-Teen program and is shared with 630 CHED Santas Anonymous Inc. for the delivery of toys to children ages 0 to 12 years.
The Christmas Bureau is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, and is a volunteer driven organization with over 900 volunteers who devote their time and talents ensuring Edmontonians in need can enjoy a Canadian tradition with a festive meal.
The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton provides year round volunteer and fundraising opportunties.
