Santa's Anonymous
Santas Anonymous logoSanta's Anonymous will be collecting toys and financial donations starting December 1 at Banff Town Hall. 

Financial donations will allow 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.

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

Please give generously.
