One act of kindness can impact someone for a lifetime

Since 1940, the Christmas Bureau has been providing holiday meals (and joy) to Edmontonians in need.

Rooted in community and compassion, our organization is connected to over 100 social service agencies, community partnerships, and 800+ volunteers to bring together our Christmas-giving programs: our Festive Food Hamper Program and our Adopt-A-Teen Program.

Operational all year long, it takes our team 10 months to plan, coordinate, and execute food service deliveries to over 60,000 people during the holiday season. No easy task considering the need for our services has almost tripled in 2022.

So, we implore you to find new ways to help us reach our goals for 2023. Whether it’s your time, monthly donations, fundraising efforts, or corporate sponsorships, everything everywhere and all at once will make an incredible difference before December 25. 

Because at the end of the day, joy starts with you.




Thank you for supporting the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton
