Event Details

Put bells on your shoes, a spring in your step and join the Brigeland Elves.   In 2017, the Bridgeland Elves will gather donations and wrap Christmas gifts for 35 low-income seniors and families living in Bridgeland. The Elves are also gathering funds to buy groceries for their Christmas Dinner. 

The gift drive runs from November 14 to December 14, 2017.  The items needed for the gift drive are listed as "tickets" which will open in a new tab when you click "register" in the top right corner of this page.  Please let us know which items you are going to purchase and donate by selecting the number of  "tickets" you wish to contribute and registering by clicking on the register button.  This allows us to make sure we end up with the correct number of each item. 

Once you have done your elf shopping, please contact us at  bridgeland.elves@gmail.com to make a plan to drop off your items. The workshop needs your items by Thursday December 14, 2017.  

Children and adults are invited to join the crew of 20 Bridgeland Elf volunteers needed to wrap the gifts on Sunday December 17, 2017 from 2:00pm to 3:30pm.  This is an afternoon rich with connection, contribution and of course Christmas treats.   Neigborhood children will deliver the gifts and sing for the seniors at Columbus Manor after school on Tuesday December 19.

Organizer

Bridgeland Elves

In 2013 one Bridgeland Elf together with the generosity of local businesses provided Christmas hampers to 9 low-income seniors living in Bridgeland.  In 2014, we became a crew of Bridgeland Elves and supported 30 seniors. In 2015 we supported 30 seniors.  For 2016, we supported 34 seniors and two low income families. This year, we plan to support 39 seniors and three families. The Bridgeland Elves are simply kind, generous and caring folk who want to gather around the holiday season to make our community a better place.  We find out what seniors in Bridgeland need.  We reach out for donations.  Compassionate Calgarians donate the items on the wish list.  Elves then gather to wrap the gifts that are delivered by neighborhood children who will also sing Christmas carols to residents of Columus Manor.
