For the past 81 years, we’ve been providing festive meals to vulnerable families, seniors and individuals in need. It’s a little act of kindness that can brighten the holidays for local seniors like June.

"I’m a survivor.  Been through lots.  Abused as a kid by my parents.  Abused as an adult by my partners.  Socio-economic problems because of both.  Raising my kids to do better and have self-confidence, self-respect, and self-love so they can be thrivers not just survivors.  Having a festive meal and gifts my little one can open Christmas morning is a joy that runs deep in society, within a parent, and within a child’s spirit.  I want my child’s spirit to soar when mine hasn’t quite lifted off yet. Thank you for helping me do that.  It’s hard enough on one’s own.  I believe in the axiom ’it takes a village to raise a child’ and I am grateful for the help of the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton and their donors." - Sandi - 2020 Client

Your donations mean more Edmonton families like Sandi’s are supported. They may be someone in our lives, going through difficult times without us even knowing it. For them, a festive meal can be an invaluable treasure. Thank you for bringing joy to Edmonton families, seniors and individuals in need this festive season.

This year, the need is greater than ever. Please consider making a gift today to help provide a festive meal to over 40,000 Edmontonians in need this holiday season.
