THE 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  and Burlington as symbols of our efforts during the Christmas season.

Other activities include our:

  • Annual Christmas Concert and Tree Lighting at Gore Park, Hamilton
  • “Blitz Day Radiothon” on 900 CHML, Y108, and Energy 95.3
  • “Operation Santa Claus Toy Truck” Toy Drive


OPERATION SANTA CLAUS

For 50 years, Jimmy and Susan Lomax made Christmas a reality for thousands of Hamilton and Burlington residents in need.

In 2010, the Children’s Fund took over stewardship and will continue the tradition of “Operation Santa Claus” in Hamilton/Burlington and is one of Canada’s largest Toy Drives.
