December's Season of Celebration and Sharing - Santa Claus Fund needs our help!!

Santa Claus

The Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund is about twenty percent short of its $1.6M goal with less than one week to go before Christmas.

This fund, established in 1906, will hopefully be able to deliver gift boxes to 45,000 boys and girls in Ajax, Pickering, Toronto, Brampton and Mississauga with the help of more than 2,000 volunteers.

Each gift box will typically contain age and sex appropriate items such as a toy, candy, a book, mittens/gloves and warm clothing.

Secure online donations can be made at

Visa, Mastercard and Amex donations can be made by phone @ 416.869.4847

Cheques can be sent to The Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund, One Yonge Street, Toronto, ON M5E 1E6 (though cheques mailed now might not reach the destination in time for Christmas)

Embrace the spirit of Christmas and help make a GTA child's dreams come true Christmas morning.

HI Chris,

We are seeing the same shortages at our local food banks and salvation army fundraising activities.

We hope your call out will encourage many to do the right thing for your community.

Chris, can not believe this! We will get online right away and do our part as well as re-post your blog here and on Facebook.

I just 'adopted' three kids in the foster care system. I got them some neat gifts and had a great time doing it. I'm kind of tapped out. I do hope your fund reaches it's goal.

Chris, I hope the community steps forward to help reach the goal set forth! For the little one's sake!

Hi Chris - The Santa Claus Fund has been around for a long long time, almost as long as the Santa Claus Parade.  It has provided a very valuable service over the years.
