Leave a Legacy of JOY

The Christmas Bureau has been part of our lives since the late 90’s. The assistance it provides during the Christmas season has become an integral part of our community. We have made a bequest in our will to the Christmas Bureau to ensure this important work continues well into the future."

Dr. and Mrs. Randall Yatscoff

This is the JOY that legacy gifts make possible each year

Every holiday season, we see family traditions come to life around dinner tables across Edmonton. The tapping of forks on plates, a child’s giggle, a teen’s shy smile, and the aroma of a special meal that brings everyone together. 

We know that Christmas will come around every December and unfortunately, there will continue to be individuals, seniors, and families that struggle financially to make this time special - but the Christmas Bureau will be there to take stress off the table.
