Merry Christmas CFAX Santas Anonymous Volunteers,
Thank you so much for dedicating your time and sharing your incredible skills during this festive Christmas season. Our journey begins with reaching out to families in need, extending a helping hand by offering Christmas hampers filled with gifts for their children and nourishing food for the entire family.
Our teams diligently prepare for special events like the Tree of Wishes campaign, a collective effort to gather the toys required for each and every child. Over a short span of three weeks, our dedicated volunteers work tirelessly in countless shifts to gather these toys and receive generous financial contributions. Teams of drivers pick up these toys from various locations, including Tree of Wishes, Toy Drives, and Toy Drop Off points, often traveling great distances in their tireless dedication.
Additionally, we host a yearly Virtual Tree of Wishes campaign, where we buy the gift for the donor -- offering parents the opportunity to select a special toy for their child.
We maintain close communication with every parent and caregiver, ensuring they receive emails, have conversations with our CFAX Santas Anonymous volunteers, and receive informative text messages to confirm the arrival of the special Christmas joy headed their way.
Once we receive and process the applications and the thousands of toys required for each campaign, the task to assemble the hamper is entrusted to numerous teams of dedicated volunteers, each treating every package as if it were meant for their own loved ones.
Every single toy is selected with the utmost care, considering each child's unique interests, and every package is double-checked and meticulously prepared for delivery. Behind the scenes, our teams work diligently to ensure the seamless reception and sorting of these toys.
The food for our hampers is sourced and purchased locally, then thoughtfully packed by dozens of volunteers. Our dedicated volunteers work in perfect harmony to assemble complete packages of gifts and food, ready to be delivered into the loving hands of families. Local firefighters join forces to distribute these packages of Christmas joy to families in need.
Each and every one of you plays a crucial role in the collective effort required to create cherished Christmas memories for these children. It is your unwavering commitment that allows our children's charity, adorned with a Christmas name, to continue serving families in need not only during the holiday season but throughout the entire year.
It takes a village – our village is 400 strong, supporting the Vison and Mission of a 46 year old children’s charity.
Create a better tomorrow by supporting local children in need today.
We are a trusted committed group of volunteers and donors who help, support and create positive change for local children and their families in need, year-round.
On behalf of Nancy Merston, Dan Deringer, Nicole Woods, Dale Smith, Danna Sereda, CFAX Santas Board of Directors, and our dedicated staff…
We extend our warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year to you and your loved ones.
