While the Christmas season is a time to be with family and loved ones, this time of the year can be especially lonely for those who live by themselves, have no family in town, or have health issues preventing them from leaving the house. It can be isolating, lonely, and lack a joyful feeling.
We want everyone to feel special at Christmas, including those who are homebound and spending the holiday alone. That's why we have our Holiday Gift Drive. Each year, Edmonton Meals on Wheels collects gifts to deliver to our clients along with a festive meal. Our clients are so appreciative of the gifts they receive, but what makes them the happiest is knowing that someone was thinking of them at Christmas.
While you are out doing your Christmas shopping, we ask you to consider those that may not have been on your list. By donating to our Holiday Gift Drive, you can show homebound and senior Edmontonians that they have not been forgotten. Your gift will truly make a difference in the life of someone in need.
Donations can be dropped off at Edmonton Meals on Wheels (11111 103 Ave) Monday through Friday, 8:00AM - 4:00PM. We will be collecting donations until December 13th.
Donated gift cards (Wal-Mart, Superstore, Save-On-Foods, etc.) and monetary gifts will be accepted to purchase additional items.
No time to get to the store? Check out our Amazon wishlist and place your order! You can even ship your donation right to our office. Please ship your donations to:

We thank you for your thoughtful consideration and hope you are able to support us this holiday season!
