In honour of Mel Cooper and his contribution to the TELUS Community Board, this fund has been established to support the 2020 Christmas campaign of CFAX Santas Anonymous. Mel Cooper founded CFAX Santas Anonymous 43 years ago - with a goal of helping local children in need at Christmas. In 2002, he established the Children's Special Grant program expanding the charity's goals into year round giving. Thousands of children have benefited from the Children's Special Grant program through enhanced playgrounds, specialized therapies, summer camp subsidies, and families in crisis to name a few.
This Christmas, CFAX Santas Anonymous has 4,250 people registered for a Christmas Hamper -- providing 2,347 children with their Christmas wishes.
Your donation will be matched up to $20,000.00 in Mel Cooper's name. Tune in to Miracle on Broad Street, the CFAX 1070 12 hour radio-thon 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. where Mel Cooper will present the total of the Mel Cooper Matching Fund.
