Since 1961, our club (P.A. Optimist Club) along with 900 CKBI radio and the Salvation Army have been collecting new unwrapped toys for Santa Anonymous. The toys go in the Christmas Hampers from the Salvation Army.
500-600 Christmas Hampers are given out after a family fills in a request for a Hamper with the Salvation Army. 1,200-2,000 toys are collected and distributed annually to Prince Albert and area. It is important that we get the toys before the Christmas Hampers are distributed a few days before Christmas.
Where and How to donate toys
A special thank-you to all our Santa Anonymous Depot locations. Our Santa Anonymous committee collects toys from all over Prince Albert regualrly leading up to the Hampers distribution time. Any toys collected later, are saved for next year.
The Santa Anonymous Raider Night encourages patrons coming to the WHL Prince Albert Raider Game (2017 Dec. 15) to bring an unwrapped toy to the game too. Usually the Prince Albert Firefighters donated a huge amount of toys at the same time. Optimist members collect the toys at the Gates.
Staff Christmas Parties
Many groups or organizations hold staff Christmas Parties and instead of a gift exchange, they get participants to bring unwrapped toys for children 0-12 years old. Just contact our club or Santa Anonymous Chair Jim N.
