Calendar of Events

Our calendar of events lists all of the important upcoming dates at Santas Depot as well as toy or fundraising events hosted by groups and businesses to fulfill our mission to deliver the "Spirit of Christmas" to less fortunate kids in Edmonton.

Plan a Fundraiser!

Fundraising events are a great way to support 630 CHED Santas Anonymous. It is a fantastic opportunity for you and/or your organization to get creative and have fun while making an important and valuable contribution. These fundraisers are organized by individuals, groups, or businesses with minimal support from 630 CHED Santas Anonymous.

Group Volunteering Application Online

Time: Oct 01, 12:00 am - Oct 31, 12:00 am
Location: Online (ADD LINK)

Group volunteers join the elves at Santas Depot for 3 hour shifts in groups of 5 to 20. Volunteers can be involved in some or all of the following activities: preparing gifts for individual children, bagging gifts for specific families, sorting toy donations, condensing sorted toy bins, and putting batteries in toys. 

  • All Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. 
  • The request form will be available online from October 1-31, 2017
  • Shifts are scheduled between November 15-December 13, 2017
  • Group volunteering is extremely popular and we often receive more requests than shifts available. In order to make it as fair of a process as possible, a lottery draw may be held for any oversubscribed (typically evening) shifts.
  • Groups will be notified by November 10 regarding their shift date or waitlist status.
  • Cancellation: Should we need to cancel your shift as much noticed will be given as possible.  Some reasons for cancellation are when we have a lack of donations or we are all caught up based on the number of request for toys.
