The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton helps families, seniors and singles at Christmas, providing festive food hampers (to meet all cultural and dietary needs), toys for children 12 and under (from 630 CHED Santas Anonymous), and gift cards for teens aged 13-17 (from Edmonton Sun's Adopt-A-Teen Program).
The Christmas Bureau is non-denominational and accessible to all low-income Edmontonains. If you need help at Christmas, call their intake line at 780.414.7695.

You are a Snow Angel if you shovel your walk within 48 hours of a snowfall and keep it clear of snow and ice all winter.
You can be a Snow Angel for someone else too. Shovelling the snow or putting down some sand when its icy can be a difficult task not only for seniors and those who are disabled, but once in a while someone else on your street might need some help.


If you would like to Volunteer as a Snow Angel, to help someone who needs assistance:
