Thank you for your interest in becoming a Secret Santa. There have been substantial changes this year to the process, so we ask that you take a minute and read the following:
Due to Covid19 restrictions we have had to make a few changes. This year we will be suppling boxes that you will need to pick up from one of our 11 distribution points. These are as follows
Please see here for store hours https://www.londondrugs.com/locations/
In addition, Regus has offered us two of their business centres as distribution locations
Hours of operation are Mon – Fri 9am to 5pm
We would like to thank London Drugs and Regus for providing the box distribution!
Boxes will be available for pickup from October 19th through to November 22nd. Gifts must go in the boxes that we provide. It is not an option to use your own box or gift bag this year. We appreciate your understanding and support with this and realize that this is an added step for you. The dimensions of the box are 16" x 12 x 12” which is just a bit bigger than a file/banker’s box. Care providers have been advised of the box size and will be submitting gift suggestions that are appropriate. Each box will have a space on the outside to write the seniors name, id number and site id. Content lists will need to be taped to the outside of the box. The boxes can be decorated with stickers or drawings if you like and the gifts inside can be individually wrapped. Gift Drop will be held on Friday November 27th, Saturday November 28th and Sunday November 29th LOCATIONS ARE STILL TBD as well as at our Christmas warehouse, location TBD. We will have at least one drop off location in each quadrant of Calgary. It is your responsibility to get the gifts to the drop off locations, in CALGARY.
Unfortunately we are unable to pick up your gifts.
By signing up you are committing to provide a gift for the number of seniors you indicate. If for some reason you are unable to fulfill your commitment you must notify us as soon as possible so that a new Santa can be found for your senior. This is extremely important! Last year there were 200 Santas who did not return their gifts. We ask that all items that go into your gift be new. The average cost to adopt a senior is between $75 and $150 depending on the needs of the senior.
If you have any questions please contact Andrea at [email protected] or at 403-257-8339 before you sign up.
