ABOUT

Our Story

The Red Deer Christmas Bureau is a non-profit organization that was set up to help children and families in need at Christmas. The goal is to provide families with a full Christmas meal and for the parents to be able to give their children gifts of toys. This is the 59th year the Red Deer Christmas Bureau has been active. The Christmas Bureau is a 100% Volunteer Based Organization. There are no paid positions so other than our operating expenses, all money goes to helping our clients. We are always looking for volunteers and Board Members who are interested in making a difference in the lives of families and children in Red Deer, Red Deer County and Penhold (includes Springbrook). The Red Deer Christmas Bureau would like to thank All Volunteers and Supporters.

We at The Red Deer Christmas Bureau believe in sharing our culture and tradition with other members of our community. Even though some of our clients have never experienced a traditional Christmas celebration we believe everyone should be able to enjoy fellowship, friendship, and family during the  holiday season.
