Christmas Challenge

ONT SA Youth Christmas Logo

The Ontario Youth Department will once again be running a Christmas Challenge! We know that COVID-19 has created challenges and uncertainties in terms of volunteers, so our hope is to encourage young people to bring Hope to their community and Help to their Corps officer through volunteering this Christmas Season.


We are challenging young people from across our Division to get involved in our annual Christmas Challenge Campaign. This year the volunteer opportunities range from standing at a Kettle, to helping with Toy Hampers, Food Hampers, or any other Christmas ministry being run at their home Corps. As long as the Corps is in need of help, it will count towards their hours.


As an extra incentive, the Youth Department is offering great prices to individuals, Corps, and a family that accumulates the most hours. We also will be continuing to do our weekly draws as in past years! We will be posting these draws on our social media pages which you can find on Facebook (Ontario Salvation Army Youth) and Instagram (@ontsayouth)


The age categories this year are:

  • Children (6-10),
  • Youth (11-15), and
  • Young Adults (16+)

Weekly draws will take place on the following dates:

  • December 8th
  • December 15th, and
  • December 22nd


To be eligible for a weekly prize draw, a minimum 2 hours must be submitted by the Tuesday prior to the draw. 


The tracking forms are linked below.

Please ensure that all final hours are submitted by Monday, January 3, 2022.
