That’s a wrap on Kelowna Santas 2021, and thanks to you, it was a huge success

As our 9th year of collecting and delivering donated gifts to families in need wraps up, all of us at Kelowna Santas want to extend an enormous thank you to our sponsors, donors, supporters and volunteers. Without you, this initiative would simply not be possible.

Thank you for everything you did and all that you gave to make it possible for us to deliver 2000 gifts to 310 families for over 700 children to open on Christmas morning this year.
