Groups

Group Volunteers are an integral part of the 630 CHED Santas Anonymous season! Service groups, coworkers, friends and more come together to help deliver the Spirit of Christmas to less fortunate families in Edmonton. 

With more options to choose from than ever, there truly is something for everyone; come to Santas Depot and experience the journey of a toy packaging gifts for kids, help out at various events year-round to help build awareness and raise funds or, new this year - help out by volunteering at the gift wrapping kiosk at Bonnie Doon Mall!

Group Volunteering Opportunities

Depot 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 1-24
  • Shifts are scheduled between November 16-December 10, 2018
  • 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 1 regarding their shift date or waitlist status.
  • Cancellation: Should we need to cancel your shift as much notice 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.  

All group spots have been filled for the 2018 season. Thank you!
