Delivering Compassion Returns for 2019

With over 14,000 meals served to Edmonton’s homeless community since 2017, Santa YEG ready to do it’s part once again

Santa YEG is pleased to announce the “Delivering Compassion” campaign is back again in 2019.  Since 2017 the delivering compassion campaign has gathered volunteers from across Edmonton to prepare fresh meals and hand deliver them to members of Edmonton’s homeless community during the holiday season.

More than meals, Santa YEG’s efforts are intended to spread love and compassion to all community members, especially those who face extreme obstacles and poverty every single day.

“Edmonton is filled with kind and generous people, many who work all year round to help those in need,” said Santa YEG Founder Jeff Tetz, “we’re just trying to make a small impact and do our part to lighten the load, even just a little bit.”

Santa YEG organizers have another motive as well; make it easy for Edmontonian’s to help those in need. Volunteers can sign up for “Compassion Nights” to help with meal prep and/or food deliveries.

“Compassion nights are incredibly meaningful experiences,” says Tetz, “we have people of all ages who help out, including kids, and the experience of handing a complete stranger on the streets a meal that you just prepared with your own hands is a human connection that money can’t buy.”

The 2019 campaign officially kicks off on December 4th. For those wanting more information or to sign up to volunteer, you can email the organizers at santaYEG@outlook.com .
