Our Christmas hampers have been collected by local families in need, ensuring that they’ll have food for the holidays and gifts to be opened on Christmas Day. Our work is done, and our 2016 hamper program draws to a close.
We’re grateful for the thousands of donors and supporters in our community. Thank you for helping us serve more families than ever and raise a record sum of $579,370 during our Miracle on Broad Street radiothon. Your continued support inspires us to do more every year.
We’re grateful to our local firefighters, who delivered hampers all over Greater Victoria. Thank you for reminding us of all the brave people in emergency services working on behalf of our community every day.
And we are grateful for the hundreds of volunteers who put in countless hours over the past year. You volunteered in shopping centres, wrapped gifts in our workshop, and packed groceries in our warehouse. You organized events, coordinated operations, and kept this giant machine running smoothly. And when families came to our warehouse to pick up their hampers, you greeted them with smiles, entertained the children, and brightened their spirits for the days ahead. Thank you for the energy and enthusiasm you bring to Santas Anonymous and the people we serve.
Working together, we made this holiday season better for hundreds of families in Greater Victoria. More importantly, we let them know that they are not alone. Thank you all for making a difference in our community. We couldn’t do this without you.
From all of us at CFAX Santas Anonymous, happy holidays and best wishes for 2017.
