The Surrey Christmas Bureau (SCB) is a non-profit, charitable organization providing low-income families living in Surrey with grocery gift cards and toys each Christmas.
Services support the experience of a joyful Christmas celebration to those who may not be financially able to achieve it on their own. The SCB is volunteer-based and works closely with a wide variety of community groups, churches, schools, individual residents and businesses.
Fundraising is focused to support the purchase of grocery gift cards. These are given to families according to family size to be used for Christmas meals. Donated toys are also distributed to the children of registered families through a central toy depot.
Some families are also matched with sponsors through the Adopt-A-Family program. Sponsors then provide food and gifts directly to registrants.
Our mandate is to ensure Surrey children age 18 and under have access to toys and food at Christmas.
Under the committed leadership of a volunteer Board of Directors and its staff members, the SCB strives to facilitate manageable growth and stability of its services. It also attempts to continually increase and diversify community partnerships, volunteers, donors and the membership of the organization.
