Our Mandate: To provide a festive meal and coordination of Christmas giving to Edmontonians in need.
A volunteer driven charity, non-denominational and accessible to all Edmontonians in need, the Christmas Bureau provides festive meals to Edmontonians in need and teen gift cards to Edmonton teens age 13 to 17. The Christmas Bureau provides coordination of Christmas services in partnership with various Christmas giving organizations like 630 CHED Santas Anonymous, Junior Chamber International and the Salvation Army to minimize the duplication of services. Approximately 50% of the clients served are children and teens under the age of 18 years.
Providing a one-stop application process for three Christmas giving programs—festive food program, teen gift card program and toys for children, applicants are screened for eligibility with dignity and respect. This reduces the stress on families by not having to apply to multiple agencies to ensure that all Christmas services are provided.
Interested candidates are required to submit a resume highlighting experience and a cover letter expressing interest. Your Christmas Bureau Committee Application Package should include:
