2022 Information

Santa’s Checklist

Thank you for supporting Seniors Christmas Cheer. Necessary changes have been made to the 2022 Christmas Cheer program to ensure the safety of our seniors.

All gifts must be placed in one box provided by Seniors Secret Service.  Your gifts must fit into the 16” x12” x 12” box.  Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, you cannot use your own box or bag.

Wrap your individual gifts if you like, and place them in the box. DO NOT WRAP THE BOX! There is important info on the outside for our volunteer team. Feel free to decorate the outside, but please don’t wrap the box or colour over the senior’s information.

In Sharpie, fill in the indicated space on the outside of the box with:

  • Your senior’s name
  • The senior’s ID#
  • The site ID#

Refer to your profile for this info.

Prepare a list of all items in the box and tape this list on the outside of the box on the top flap.

Pick up your box(es): We are in the process of securing distribution points for the empty gifts boxes to be picked up from. Once we have this confirmed, you will receive an email with the locations and addresses as well as the dates the boxes will be available. We will make every effort to have distribution points throughout the city.

Drop your box off at one of the following locations, updated for 2022:

District 1: 1010 26 Avenue S.E.

District 2: 4506 17 Avenue S.W.

District 4: 3207 12 Ave NE

District 8: 450 Midpark Way S.E.

Spyhill Services Centre: 12500 85 Street N.W

For anyone who cannot make the drop off weekend, we will be accepting gifts at the Christmas warehouse. Please call 403-257-8339 to make arrangements.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to be flexible, enabling us to reach as many isolated seniors as possible.

These are the only stations that will be able to accept your gifts. Drop off times are Nov. 25, 26, and 27 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

If you are ill, or you or anyone in your household is awaiting results from a covid-19 test, we ask that you contact us to make alternate arrangements.

Please contact Andrea at 403-257-8339 or at coordinator@seniorssecretservice.com with any questions.

Thanks to you we will adopt close to 6000 seniors this Christmas season!   We couldn’t do this without your generous support.
