Come & gather with the rest of the community in the Christmas Bureau's Toy Room for an evening of delicious holiday treats, a free photobooth, prizes, music, and a celebration of philanthropy and giving in Burnaby!
Simply stop by or drop off a new and unwrapped toy (charitable tax receipts will be provided) and who knows? Maybe you'll even take home with you a raffle prize!

What is the Burnaby Christmas Bureau?
Through the Christmas Bureau, we offer hampers for seniors and individuals who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness, as well as gifts for children of families with low income. Last year, we made the holiday season brighter for 3,016 people – including 1,667 children, 86 seniors, and 60 unique individuals.
Our goal is to share the holiday spirit by making sure that everyone has a present under the tree on Christmas morning!
What to expect from the event:
We welcome you to come over, have some festive food, enter our raffle draw, bid on an silent auction item, and learn about:
1. Where to drop off a toy or other donations.
2. What it would take to sponsor a family during Christmas.
3. How to host an Angel Project at work, school, or home.
4. Ways to volunteer.
5. The Angel Breakfast & Toy Drive hosted by the Burnaby Firefighters
6. And most importantly, why the Christmas Bureau exists.
Bring your family and friends and be a part of this one-of-a-kind holiday gathering in the community. Let's all celebrate the joy of giving, together!
Location: Unit 19 — Lower Level (In the old American Eagle store space, across from Michael Hill and Rogers)
