Sponsorship Opportunities

For every one of the 998 streets in Red Deer one child is going without.

The Red Deer Christmas Bureau partners with Red Deer businesses to work together in providing solutions to child poverty. It is important to understand that these invaluable programs really do reach and help a child in need.

How It Works

To contribute to any of the 6 programs below please call us directly at (403) 347-2210. We encourage you to look through our sponsorship programs and find the one that is right for you. We also encourage you to have a second choice if your first choice has been sponsored in full by one company or by multiple companies.
Once you have sponsored your choice of programs we will then place your logo on the program letting our people know that you have made a difference in the lives of our children.

We the Red Deer Christmas bureau has built strong and intimate relationships with our clients over the years. This has given us the ability to understand their needs on a greater level. Keeping this in mind we prefer that your donations be in the form of monetary value so we can ensure that we fill the children’s needs explicitly. If you are unable to provide your donations in monetary value we understand and appreciated your help just as much.

Literacy Program

Did you know that the Red Christmas Bureau provides 3 new books to each child every year. With the help of retired school teachers the Red Deer Christmas Bureau is the first and only Christmas Bureau to offer a library for our kids.
Our literacy program assists in child development by preparing children for life-long learning and success.

Reading is the most effective way to ignite a child’s imagination, build a strong foundation for their cognitive skills, assist them in developing their communication skills leading to effective social skills and much more!

We work closely with organizations such as Chapters, the Red Deer Public Library, and new and used bookstores to provide the proper books for each age group.
The literacy program costs us $6000.00 per year.

Pajama Program

Children grow a lot and they grow out of their clothes fast! Keeping up with this “growing” need is an expensive task for our clients.
We want to help relieve this hardship by providing every child with a new set of pajamas on Christmas morning. Unfortunately, everyday schoolwear is a feat in itself, therefore our clients are unable to provide this simple item for their children.

Last year we provided 1020 children with toys but unfortunately, we couldn’t provide all of our children with warm pajamas.

Each pajama set comes with a cost of $15.00.

We receive approximately 300 sets of donated pajamas every year. Another 700 sets of pajamas are needed to ensure every one of our children receives a pair to give them comfort at night.
Each pair of pajamas will come with a tag on them with who they are from along with a letter from the organization.
Supporters will also receive a social media thank-you from the Christmas Bureau along with a tax-deductible receipt. The cost to fund this program is $10,500 per year.

Boys and Girls Pajamas
0-3 years = 197 Kids @ $15.99 = $3,150.00
4-6 years = 192 Kids @ $15.99 = $3070.08
7-9 years = 199 Kids @ $15.99 = $3,182.0
10-12 years = 194 Kids @ $15.99 = $3,102.06
13-17 years = 238 Kids @ $15.99 = $3,805.62
