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, Aldershot 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 AM900 CHML, Y108, and 953 Fresh Radio
  • “Operation Santa Claus Toy Truck” toy drive
