Surrey 30 Days of Giving
Usually around this time, we’re preparing to welcome 500+ guests to our annual Seasonal Sizzle event for a night of networking, fun and support for a local charity. We realize that there is no safe way to do that this year, so we’re launching the Seasonal Sizzle – A Very COVID Christmas – 30 Days of Giving Campaign in support of the Surrey Christmas Bureau and the Surrey Food Bank. We know that the requests for support from charities has increased exponentially as a result of the pandemic.
From November 24th – December 23rd, we’re challenging local businesses and their teams to help make Christmas special for those in need.
So many in our community are working to make ends meet. The holidays are particularly stressful for families that don’t have enough.
When you choose to support the Surrey Christmas Bureau, your contribution is used to purchase and distribute age-appropriate toys. Parents can pick out toys, games, stuffed animals, sports equipment and winter clothing for their children at our central depot. Grocery cards are also distributed according to family size to be used for nutritious food.
We work continually to increase and diversify community partnerships, volunteers, donors and our organization’s membership. As Surrey continues to grow rapidly and as the economy’s instability lingers, each year there is a greater need for the services we provide. We welcome your financial and volunteer support.
The Surrey Christmas Bureau (SCB) is a volunteer-run non-profit, charitable organization.

The Surrey Food Bank provides food to families living in Surrey and North Delta. We pride ourselves in supplying nutritious food in a respectful and dignified environment. In addition, we believe it is our responsibility to connect our clients to other community services as a means of helping them become self-sufficient. We take pride that we “Invite, Inform, Involve and Inspire” our community.
As a non-profit, charitable organization, the Surrey Food Bank operates because of donations of money and food. These donations come from individuals, organizations and corporations. We also benefit from various fundraising efforts, such as our Breakfast with the Bank and from third party events run by other organizations. We receive no core government funding.
In working towards our vision of growing our community beyond hunger, the Surrey Food Bank serves as a connection point for our clients to engage with many other organizations and services throughout our community that they would not otherwise have access to.
