Get Assistance

630 CHED Santas Anonymous, the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton and Adopt-A-Teen programs work together to provide a festive meal and gifts for children at Christmas. 

For your convenience there is a single application form to

receive assistance from all three programs.

Please answer the following two questions to help us point you in the right direction. 


1. Do you live in the City of Edmonton?

Great! Please move on to Question Number 2.

630 CHED Santas Anonymous delivers toys within the City of Edmonton boundaries only.

Each community has a similar program although the name may be different. Contact your local Food Bank or Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) office to find out who coordinates the toy program in your area.

2. Do you have an ongoing relationship with a local agency?

Great! Applications may be available from the agency that you are connected with. Please contact them to complete your application for assistance.

Did you know that we work together with many agencies to avoid duplication of applications and services? 

For example, if a family receives assistance from the Salvation Army, they will not receive assistance from 630 CHED Santas Anonymous, the Christmas Bureau or Adopt A Teen.  If a family is receiving a food hamper from Junior Chamber International (JCI), Beulah Alliance Church or Sacred Heart of the First Peoples Church the application is forwarded to us, so they will also receive toys and gift cards from 630 CHED Santas Anonymous and Adopt A Teen.

Our objective, along with these agencies, is to be able to assist ten families once, rather than one family ten times.
