Business Number: 837238823RR0001

The Shamrock Children`s Christmas Society Is a non-profit registered charity. Established by hard working Calgarians over 30 years ago!    In the past 15 years, we have supported over 500 families and more than 1500 children, with gifts of toys, clothing, food, Christmas trees and a visit from Santa and his Elves. 2015 was a successful year providing presents, hampers and Christmas Joy for 73 families which included 193 children.

                  How our success is achieved

 Early in the school year, our team of interviewers contact local schools for names of families, who could use a hand up at Christmas. Each family is then interviewed by a volunteer to determine their needs following the guidelines set out by the board of directors.  We supply these families with food hampers, clothing, gifts for the children, Christmas trees, and even a visit from Santa.    

A shopper is assigned for each family and the mission begins! The shoppers flock to the malls of Calgary in search of donations and good deals. The Christmas Tree volunteers arrange to deliver the real or artificial trees according to each families request. The grocery team sorts the food for each family.  On delivery day the volunteers gather to sort and load the gifts for Santa and his Elves deliver.         

  All of this is accomplished through generous donations, from individuals such as yourself!

" They say the sun can't shine every day and some days you feel it never will and that's how I felt until I saw the sun shinning on the face of my son when the Shamrock Children's Fund brought Christmas to our home. Thank you for letting believe in not giving up! "
