We've made Christmas for kids since 1930.
Christmas is about family and friends. It is about sharing and giving. Christmas should be a happy time for everyone, especially for children. For over eighty years our number one goal has been to ensure that every child in our community has a smile on their face on Christmas Day.
The Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau (LMCB) was originally established in 1930 as the Christmas Exchange. Today it serves as a centralized, year round toy warehouse for toys and gifts to be gathered, sorted, stored and shipped to Christmas Bureaus and Community agencies, across the entire metro Vancouver area. We ship up to 100,000 items every year.
We also serve as the local Christmas Bureau for Vancouver. The LMCB distributes toys, clothes and food vouchers to over a 1000 low income families in Vancouver during the holiday season.
As a registered non-profit organization, the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau relies on volunteers and a number of fundraising events throughout the year to support our goals.
