This year marks the 43rd annual Chum Christmas Wish. I’ll be volunteering for Chum Christmas Wish 2009 and plan to volunteer each year thereafter.
The Chum Christmas Wish is an inspiring program. It was originally established in 1966 as a charitable foundation called CHUM’s Kid’s Crusade Foundation, for the purpose of assisting children in need, and children’s charities.
The CP24/CHUM Christmas Wish has become one of the largest distributors of toys to those in need in the GTA, supplying registered charitable organizations, social service agencies, churches, and community centres. In turn, they distribute the donations to those families, of many faiths and cultures, who require our support.
I’m sure if you live in the GTA – Oakville, Mississuaga, Toronto, Brampton, Scarborough, Toronto – you have heard about the Chum Christmas Wish and thought about volunteering – well you should this year!
The Chum Christmas Wish starts Monday, November 16th 2009 and continues until Noon, Thursday, December 24th 2009. The headquarters and toy distribution warehouse is located in Mississauga, at 3035 Wharton Way.
