Donate Items

What to donate

Want to donate gifts, but not sure where to start? The Magic of Christmas visits Calgarians of all ages, from newborns to grandparents. If you’re looking for inspiration, please check out or print our Christmas Wish List for ideas.

Please note that all gift donations that arrive at Santa’s Workshop must be new, unused and unwrapped.

Where to donate

Donations can be dropped off at Santa’s Workshop between November and December, or at one of our many drop-off locations in December. We have over 40 donation drop off locations in every quadrant of the city! Find your nearest drop-off location below, or request a box for your workplace.



Request a donation box

We invite Calgary’s working force to donate gifts with ease, from the comfort of their offices. Simply request one or more donation boxes for your workspace anytime between November and Christmas Eve. Besides knowing that your gifts will go toward a family in need, this can make for a fun and meaningful initiative or challenge for you and your colleagues.

Please call Santa’s Workshop at 403-803-1619 to request a donation box.
