THE CHRISTMAS TREE OF HOPE
The annual Children’s Fund Christmas Tree Of Hope was founded in 1976 to bring hope to kids and families struggling through the holiday season.
The campaign now serves as the primary fundraising mechanism for the Children’s Fund. Official “Christmas Tree Of Hope” trees are lit in Gore Park Hamilton and Burlington as symbols of our efforts during the Christmas season.
Other activities include our:
- Annual Christmas Concert at Gore Park in Hamilton
- “Blitz Day Radiothon” on 900 CHML, Y108, and Energy 95.3
- “Operation Santa Claus Toy Truck” toy drive
OPERATION SANTA CLAUS
For 50 years, Jimmy and Susan Lomax made Christmas a reality for thousands of Hamilton and Burlington residents in need.
In 2010, the Children’s Fund took over stewardship and will continue the tradition of “Operation Santa Claus” in Hamilton/Burlington and is one of Canada’s largest Toy Drives.
