Relying on thousands of volunteers and donors, 630 CHED Santas Anonymous now collects, sorts, packages, and delivers toys to over 25,000 children every year. These children are between the ages of zero and 12 years old, and likely wouldn’t be getting a gift at Christmas if it wasn’t for Santas Anonymous. Since 1955, Santas Anonymous has been delivering “the spirit of Christmas”, thanks to the thousands of volunteers and donors who support this effort.

As student ambassador, I am reaching out to students at NAIT to learn about the magic of Santas Anonymous first-hand. The first time you walk into the depot to wrap toys, or drop off a gift to someone’s house on Delivery Weekend, it changes your world. Edmonton has always been a loving and supportive city in my eyes, and I want to help ensure that new generations continue with this life-changing tradition. Any way that a student can be involved is appreciated by Santas Anonymous, and makes an impact on someone in need.

Below you will find more information on how staff and students can get involved with Santas Anonymous. As well, sharing content on social media is always appreciated. Follow Santas Anonymous on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @SantasAnonymous. For more information, visit the website at www.santasanonymous.ca.

If you are a staff member looking to share this information with your class, please contact me at apetersen3@nait.ca and I’d be thrilled to come talk with your students! Otherwise, please forward this e-mail on to as many staff & students as possible.

Thank you so much for your support!
