2016 Tree of Wishes mall locations

Help us fill a child’s Christmas wish

From November 21 until December 14, look for the Santas Anonymous Tree of Wishes at shopping centres throughout Greater Victoria. On each tree you’ll find Santa Bear ornaments containing gift requests from children in need, waiting to be fulfilled by caring community members.

Select the Santa Bear requests that you want to accept and return the gifts to a Tree of Wishes display. Our volunteers will ensure that your donations are wrapped and delivered to the children for whom they are purchased.

In 2016, our Tree of Wishes displays will be at:

Where do I bring my gift donation?

You can return your donations to a Tree of Wishes display during mall hours. Alternatively, donations can be brought to the front desk of the CFAX Santas Anonymous office at 1420 Broad Street (24 hours a day, seven days a week).

When is the last day to bring in my donation?

Please return your Santa Bear gifts as soon as possible to avoid delays in preparing Christmas Hampers, and preferably no later than December 11.
