Santa's Anonymous
Santas Anonymous logoNew for 2014 – No More Food Donations
Santa's Anonymous will only be collecting toys and financial donations beginning in 2014. This change allows us to control the quality of each food item going into hampers, and helps us provide fresh, healthy hampers. Volunteers will use cash donations to purchase specific, nutrient-dense, non-perishable and fresh food items this year.

As a result, Santa’s Anonymous food bins will no longer be in Nesters and Safeway during the month of December. All financial and toy donations may be made at Banff Town Hall starting on December 1, 2014.

We encourage everyone to embrace this change, help spread the word and give everyone in the community a “fresh” start to the New Year. 

Last year our hampers included fresh fruit and vegetables alongside a turkey dinner. This year there will be no highly processed food (Kraft dinner, Sidekicks, Ichiban, etc.) placed in the hampers. Santa’s Anonymous will continue to provide for those with unique needs as requested, specifically for seniors, babies, the homeless and people on dietary restrictions.

Please give generously. 

Santa's Anonymous is always looking for volunteers throughout the month of December. To volunteer, contact Alison Milroy at 403.762.5323 or email her at 

Priceless Surprises
MasterCard Canada donated over 5,000 toys to Santa's Anonymous as part of their Priceless Surprises campaign. Learn more about this huge donation or check out their video delivering toys to communities. Banff's donation can be seen at 1:47. 

Santa's Anonymous Christmas Hamper Drive 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. The application process has closed for 2014.
