Drop off gifts and bring joy to children across the Okanagan

The festive season is a time for joy, love, and generosity, and we're thrilled to announce the return of Kelowna Santas, a program that's been making a significant impact on families in need across the Okanagan for the last decade.

We will be collecting toys and donations via drop locations which are scattered throughout Kelowna up until December 13. These toys will then be wrapped and delivered by our team of elves and reindeer to families just in time for Christmas.

We would like to thank all the local businesses who have already registered as drop locations for 2023, your support helps bring smiles to the faces of children during the festive season.

If you're interested in registering as a drop location, please sign up here.

We encourage members of our community to support this incredible initiative and donate unwrapped gifts especially for boys aged 14-17 who we often have less gift donations for.

Gifts such as headphones, speakers, card games, and electronics would be ideal for individuals in this age bracket.

Our heartfelt thank you goes to our incredible sponsors who help make Kelowna Santas as successful as it is each year.

Notably Kelowna Toyota, our presenting sponsor for the third consecutive year, Secure-Rite Mobile Storage sponsoring for the 4th year, and TD Bank marking their 8th year of supporting Kelowna Santas.

Without their help alongside the support from the community, we wouldn't be able to continue Kelowna Santas each year.
