CFAX Radio are proud supporters of CFAX Santas Anonymous. Giving the charity a voice in the community is the message of hope local children rely on.
43 years ago, former owner of CFAX 1070 Radio, Mel Cooper, founded CFAX Santas Anonymous Society, to help local children and their families at Christmastime.
Mel was approached by Marilyn Cann, who had been running Santas Anonymous out of her basement with the help of family, friends and local business. Once the program grew, she knew that approaching Mel Cooper might be the answer to keeping this much needed gift to the community. Mel knew this was a wonderful opportunity to expand CFAX Radio’s charitable work in the community with a unique program that uplifted families at Christmas and eventually, year-round.
Years later, CFAX Radio and Bellmedia leadership and staff have carried on this incredible support. Talk show hosts, reporters, producers, creative staff, graphic design, sound, programming and many more support this cherished charity sharing their expertise, skills and talents. CFAX Radio and its sister stations CTV Vancouver Island and Virgin Radio are the in-kind supporters that share the voice of need.
Thank you CFAX Radio and Bellmedia!
