Drop Off Holiday Toy Donations in Edmonton
The holiday season is widely known as the season of giving. Due to this, many people all over the world become much more charitable during this time of year. During the holiday season, there are many children who do not receive a gift during the holidays for a variety of different reasons. To remedy this situation, the Edmonton community is strongly encouraged to donate toys for the 630 CHED Santas Anonymous event this holiday season.
About 630 CHED Santas Anonymous
630 CHED Santas Anonymous is an event designed to collect as many new toys as possible this holiday season. Each toy collected during the event will go to a less-fortunate child to make their holidays a little more special. There are several donation locations spread all throughout the city of Edmonton and the surrounding areas including right here at Kia West Edmonton!
History of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous
630 CHED Santas Anonymous was founded in 1955 by CHED’s production manager Jerry Forbes. Jerry’s dream was to provide new toys to the less fortunate children in Edmonton. During the first year of the Santas Anonymous event, CHED was able to deliver gifts to over 600 children. Today, this event provides over 25,000 children with a new toy to enjoy during the holiday season.
