Due to COVID-19, some adjustments have been made to Santa’s Anonymous this year.
Santa’s Anonymous will be unable to accept their usual donations of gifts and food baskets this year due to COVID-19 restrictions and safety concerns. Santa’s Anonymous is accepting monetary donations such as cash, cheques, and gift cards, and they have opened up their donations early this year to allow for families they support to complete Christmas shopping for themselves. Donations will be mailed out to families by December 7.
To become a recipient of Santa’s Anonymous, one must complete a registration form including a reference from Human resources, Children Services, School staff, Clergy, Counsellors, Municipal administration or councillors, FCSS, nurses, or RCMP members. Donation boxes for Santa’s Anonymous can be found in Vermilion drugstores, grocery stores, banks, The Bargain Shop, or in Mannville at the Mannville Beauty salon or Mannville Co-op.
