There’s just one week left to make a huge difference for a family with children this Christmas!
For 56 years the Red Deer Christmas Bureau has meant that in this city at least, the many families struggling to make ends meet.. will be able to share a beautiful Christmas Day together. Thanks to your generosity that Christmas day comes complete with all the food a family will need, plus gifts for the children… and even wrapping paper, trees and tinsel!
A visit to the Christmas Bureau in December is a chance to experience the Christmas Spirit of heartwarming generosity. It’s a beehive of activity with volunteers stocking shelves, helping clients, and organizing a huge storeroom.
Most importantly, it’s a place where people who are in need experience the generosity of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of Central Albertans who donate gifts of food, clothes, toys, and cash.

No idea what I’m supposed to write here, let’s just describe where I am, I guess. There’s a lot of water in this room. Quite a few windows, too. Only one coffee stirring stick thingy though. Oh, look. The door says “Employees only.”
Whoops. That race car picture is crooked. Is it supposed to be? I don’t know. Wonder where that unplugged cord goes. There are nails up on that wall… Wonder what used to go there. Alright, enough nitpicking. Time to find some picture or other to stick in here. There. Found me on Google maps. I’m right in that corner office there. They really should get rid of those Weight Loss Clinic signs… I guess that isn’t really their first priority. Looks like enough. Let’s post it.
