Santa's Anonymous
Santas Anonymous logoSanta's Anonymous is a community-based program in Banff and Lake Louise that helps those in need during the holiday season. The program provides Christmas food hampers to support financially strained families and individuals during the holidays. 


Santa’s Anonymous moved towards providing a healthier Christmas Hamper to all recipients in 2013. The hamper’s nutritive guideline will be based on the Canada Food Guide (PDF). We want to promote healthier lifestyles for recipients as well as donors.

Primarily, we are asking for monetary donations in order to facilitate this move towards a healthier hamper. Santa’s Anonymous will purchase, because of time and spoilage issues, fresh vegetables and fruits and we ask that no fresh produce be donated as we do not have refrigerated storage.

  • Monetary donations can be made at Banff Town Hall throughout the year. Income tax receipt provided for all monetary donations.
  • Food donations can be dropped off December 1 until December 20 at Safeway's, Nesters Market and Banff Town Hall
  • Toy donations can be dropped off December 1 until December 20 at Banff Town Hall
