Donation Desk Program

Do you love helping donors fulfill their desire to provide a festive meal to Edmontonians in need? Are you outgoing and like to talk and engage people in a great cause.  Then the role of Donation Desk Ambassador is for you.

What does it mean to be a Donation Desk Ambassador? It’s simple! All we need to you to do is accept donations, issue tax receipts, and talk to shoppers about how their donation helps people in their neighbourhood, in their community.  The people being helped are people we see every day but don’t know the struggles they are going through to provide a festive meal for their families.

Whether you volunteer for three shifts or twenty, we’d love to have you join us as a Donation Desk Ambassador this festive season!
