Volunteer Groups of 5+ 

Volunteering in Santa's Warehouse is a fun team building opportunity for corporate/community groups of 5 to100 people. Whether your group likes to wrap presents or work in the warehouse, we have a job for everyone! Register your group 

  • Group shifts in the warehouse take place from December 4-13 only

  • Shifts are 4 hours in length and take place in the morning, afternoon and evening (on select days)

  • The location of the warehouse changes from year-to-year and we are unable to disclose the address until early November. It is typically located in the west end GTA (i.e. Etobicoke/Mississauga)

  • Our work day volunteer shifts fill up very quickly because of the limited space and time. Your spot will only be reserved when you apply online in the link provided. 

For corporate/community groups of 5+ people, we request a donation to reserve the block of shifts. The donation amount is based on the size of your group and will be emailed to you upon registration. Once registered, our Volunteer Coordinator will follow up to answer any questions and arrange payment of the donation. Your reserved spot will be held for 48 hours until the corporate group donation is received. Due to such a high volume of requests for group volunteering, after 48 hours the spot will be opened back up to the public.

For more information on the donation for volunteer groups or to reserve a block of shifts for 5 or more people in Santa's warehouse, please register your group. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to answer all your questions or confirm your reservation.

A special thank you to the two volunteers who dropped the boxes at our home with so much love and warmth in the hearts. Each and every gift was wrapped with so much love. We will definitely remember you all every year when we put up our Christmas tree.
