Want to get involved and help out those less fortunate this holiday season?

One way you can help out is through the Children’s Aid Foundation's Surrogate Santa program.

The purpose of the Surrogate Santa Program is to raise the resources required to assist the children and families served by various child welfare organizations in Toronto during the holidays. For families who struggle to meet daily living expenses, the holiday season brings an added stress of the need for extra funds to provide their children with gifts and food.

Last year the program raised more than $200,000 and helped thousands of families and children in the community.

There are 3 ways to help:
  1. Make a donation to the Surrogate Santa Holiday Fund
  2. Sponsor a family in need this holiday season
  3. Become a Virtual Surrogate Santa and get your friends and family involved.
For those looking to get more directly involved in charitable work this season, Blogto.com has a list of volunteering opportunities for the holidays.
