The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton offers a one-stop application process for three Christmas services:

  • food hamper or food gift card from the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton food program
  • toys for children aged 0 to 12 years through 630 CHED Santas Anonymous
  • gift cards for teens aged 13 to 17 through the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton’s Edmonton Sun Adopt-A-Teen program

The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton works closely with other Christmas charity programs to reduce duplication of services.  As a community we work together to provide Christmas assistance to as many people as possible.  These Christmas programs use the same screening process as the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton to ensure consistency in application.

The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton’s program is intended to provide support to families, individuals and seniors in need who otherwise would not receive a festive meal or gifts for their children and teens. Our programs are not intended to be a doubling up or topping up of Christmas services already provide. Our programs are funded through community donations and are not governed by or an extension of any government programs.
