Kids' Holiday Store Fundraiser
Each December, children ages 4 and up from all over Chestermere and the surrounding area line up to see what is new and exciting at the Kids’ Holiday Store.
Before entering the store, kids can prepare their shopping lists. Then, little shoppers are paired up with a store Elf to pick out presents for their loved ones. Parents/caregivers will wait outside of the store until the little shopper has checked off everyone from their list. After that, shoppers and Elves will wrap each gift in order to kept it a surprise until the holidays!

How does the Kids’ Holiday store work?
The Kids’ Holiday Store supports the Gifts of Kindness program by encouraging community donations of new or ’like new’ items for the store, and through the purchase of tokens that children can exchange in the store for gifts for their family and friends with the help of a store Elf!
- Step 1: You can register to bring your child or children to our Kids’ Holiday Store by purchasing tokens for your child to use at the store. You’ll be able to register through Eventbrite.
You can purchase as many tokens as your child needs to exchange for gifts in the store. All proceeds from the tokens go to the Gifts of Kindness campaign.
- Step 2: At the store, Parents and caregivers wait outside the store until the little shopper has found gifts for everyone on their list, with the help of a store Elf!
The elves will help the children wrap their chosen presents so they can remain a surprise until the holidays!
All of the proceeds from the children’s purchases at our Kids’ Holiday Store are put towards providing basic needs support through the City of Chestermere’s Family & Community Resource Centre programs.
