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 Santa's 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.

Group Volunteering Opportunities

Depot volunteers join the elves at Santa's Depot for 3-hour shifts in groups of 10 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 September 15-30, 2024.
  • Shifts are scheduled between November 18-December 6, 2024.
  • 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 October 18, 2024 regarding their shift date or waitlist status.
  • Cancellation: Should we need to cancel your shift, as much notice will be given as possible.

Porters assist Delivery Days volunteer drivers with taking gift packages from Santa's Depot to their vehicles in the parking lot.  Porters may also assist drivers with bringing undeliverable gift packages from their vehicles into Santa's Depot.

Youths ages 16+ are eligible to volunteer as porters; however, one adult dispatch supervisor is required per 3 youths.
