Due to the impact of Covid-19; and to better position ourselves to fulfill our mission, The Board of Directors has agreed to pause funding until October 31, 2020.
These are extraordinary times and extraordinary circumstances for all of us. We have been faced with event cancellations or postponements and have been unable to fundraise which has resulted in drastic revenue shortfalls.
Our commitment to supporting children in our community has not changed and we feel it’s even more essential now during these unprecedented times. We will be reviewing our funding initiatives and overall operations over the summer and evaluating our contributions in October.
Thank you and be safe.

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, Aldershot and Burlington as symbols of our efforts during the Christmas season.
Other activities include our:
- Annual Christmas Concert at Gore Park in Hamilton
- “Blitz Day Radiothon” on 900 CHML, Y108, and 953 Fresh Radio
- “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.
