The Christmas season is upon us, and after the year we've had, we're looking forward to spreading a little extra joy -

and we hope you'll join us!


Formerly known as Secret Santa,

we've made some slight adjustments and are excited to present

The Christmas Giving Tree

How It Works:


You'll find a number of Giving Trees at local business around town. From there, you'll take an anonymous tag, which will include a gender and an age. You'll then go purchase a gift for the individual on your chosen tag, and bring the unwrapped gift to the FCSS office. We'll include wrapping supplies, and have it ready to go for families to pick up before Christmas! 

** please have gifts purchased and dropped off by December 10 ** 

If you're wanting to make a monetary donation - which will help cover the costs of grocery store vouchers for a hearty Christmas meal - you can do so through our event partner, Wetaskiwin Salvation Army.


Below, you'll find a link to our online application. Simply fill this out, and we'll handle the rest. We'll arrange gifts for your children, as well as a vouchers to a local grocery store for a Christmas dinner for you and your family. Gifts will be ready to be picked up on December 16 and 17 at the Wetaskiwin Salvation Army.
