Every year, CFAX Santas Anonymous Society delivers much-needed support to families throughout Greater Victoria. This is accomplished primarily through our Christmas Hamper program, which takes place annually in December, and the funding we provide to local organizations and children via Special Grants that are awarded in the spring and fall.
Thanks to our dedicated sponsors, corporate supporters, volunteers, and community members, we’re working year-round to build brighter futures for children in need.
The 2014 Christmas Hamper program
Apply for assistance
Families in need of assistance in 2014 can download the Christmas Giving Network application and return it to one of the five participating organizations.
The deadline is December 1, and applicants are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible.
Please note that CFAX Santas Anonymous only assists families with children under the age of 17 (other members of the Christmas Giving Network provide support for both families and individuals). As well, families should submit only one application; duplicate submissions to multiple organizations may result in all applications being rejected.
Volunteer or donate
We’re looking for volunteers to help us deliver the Christmas Hamper program and organize fundraisers on behalf of Santas Anonymous. Descriptions of the various volunteer roles will be posted in early October.
In November, we’ll return to Victoria-area shopping centres with our Tree of Wishes program, asking patrons to donate funds and new toys to the Christmas Hamper program. You can also donate online via CanadaHelps.org.
