Join Us for an Hour of Virtual Cheer in Support of Local Charities

We’re moving the unofficial kickoff of the holiday season online this year–but it’s going to be as joyful as ever as we invite everyone to join us in support of 21 local charities who need our help. Christmas Cheer has been supporting local charities for almost 70 years, and this year they need us more than ever. So get your coffee and breakfast and tune in!

Hosts Graham Richardson and Patricia Boal along with the ever-entertaining Matt Skube will help make spirits bright throughout the breakfast and will welcome local celebrities and elected officials including Minister Lisa MacLeod, Mayor Jim Watson, members of City Council and Santa!

Asking for donations is no easy feat. This is why we take it upon ourselves to ask for help on behalf of those who need it. We do the legwork so that members of our community can focus on more important things.

We’d like you to consider making any contribution you can, no matter the amount, so that our organization can continue to provide meals to those in need throughout the holiday season.
