Adopt-A-Teen:  Saturday, December 23, 2017 – 10:30 a.m.

1,342 teens to go.

With one day left in the official campaign, The Adopt-A-Teen Christmas gift program for under-privileged teens still needs to raise $67,000 today, to ensure all 7,800 teens living in less-fortunate Edmonton families have Adopt-A-Teen $50 gift cards for Christmas.

Can you find it in your heart to send a little Christmas cheer to a teen whose parents or guardians simply cannot afford to buy him or her a gift? Can you let them know they are loved?

Can you make a small $50 donation to ensure one more teen has something for Christmas, or is able to buy small gifts for their loved ones? 

Please spread the word!

Donations can be made on this website,  Just click on the "Donate" button on the home page. A tax receipt will be sent to your email address.

$50 takes care of one teen, $100 for two and so on.  Any donation of any size is most appreciated.

Donations can also be made by phone at 780-414-7694 until 4 p.m. today (Saturday).   If the line is busy, please try again.

Adopt-A-Teen can still accept donations after Christmas, if need be. Cheques can be made out to "Adopt-A-Teen" and mailed to Adopt-A-Teen, Box 16000, Edmonton, AB, T5J 4B4.  Website donations can be made at any time.

For specific inquiries, please contact

Claire Theobald, Adopt-A-Teen spokesperson, 780-909-3856,
Andrea Peyton, Adopt-A-Teen 2017 organizing committee chair, 780-717-0973,

On behalf of all the 7,800 Edmonton teens who would not have a gift this Christmas without your generosity, thank you!
