To everyone in the Santas Anonymous volunteer family:
We are a family of sisters, brothers, elders and kids of all ages. We care about one another, we celebrate hard work and accomplishments, we laugh together and sometimes we grieve together.
We share our resources and expertise to plan for the future, and we deliver the bounty received by donors with those that need it most. We are a very large family–one with hundreds of individuals that share one common goal: to help our local children.
Our volunteers live in all corners of our community, keeping our ears to the ground and fingers on the pulse of Greater Victoria. And when an opportunity arises to help a child, we never shy away from the task at hand…whether we’re in the workshop, warehouse, board room, or main office, at a special event, delivering hampers, or getting the message out online and on air.
Let’s continue to grow into the future and expand our marvelous family, generation by generation. You make a difference every day with your gift of time, your gift of expertise and your gift of love.
I am blessed to know and work with each and every one of you. So this week–and every week of the year–I celebrate YOU!
