Miracle on Broad Street is about the children whose lives are changed by an act of kindness: gifts under the Christmas tree and food on the table, washing away the trappings of poverty, sadness, or loss, and inspiring them with memories they will keep for a lifetime.
During the Miracle on Broad Street radio-thon, the on-air hosts of CFAX 1070 bring you updates on Santas Anonymous, introduce some of our fantastic supporters and past recipients, and invite the Greater Victoria community to lend a helping hand. Staff from CFAX, KOOL FM, and CTV will be on the phones to take your pledges, along with volunteers from our corporate supporters, and every dollar raised goes toward purchasing food for families in need.
Every year, the funds raised during Miracle on Broad Street enable us to supply each family with three bags of groceries and a grocery gift card for perishable foods (such as meat, cheese, and milk)–enough for a wonderful Christmas dinner and to help with meals while the children are home for the holidays. Families also receive gifts of toys and clothing for every child aged 17 and under.
No gift is too small! From philanthropists dropping in with major gifts to children bringing their piggy banks (this really happens), every penny that we receive makes a difference in the lives of local children and their families.
Miracle on Broad Street is your Miracle. Thank you for sharing it!
