Santa Comes to Bay Street holds an annual Santa's Work Shop which uniquely partners shoppers (Elves) with families and recipients that are in need of support from shelters in the Greater Toronto Area. Elves select families or individual recipients and help make their holiday dreams come true by putting together a Santa's bag for each recipient. Bag's contents includes everything from basic necessities, to gifts requested by the recipients. In this way we have created a very personalized process where the fortunate can create a real impact on those who are in need around the holidays.

The first Santa's Work Shop was held in 2003, it set the foundation for the creation of a registered charity - Santa Comes to Bay Street. Over the last 17 years the event has grown substantially, the 2017 event provided gift bags to over 1750 recipients.
