A Cheerful Christmas For Many Families in Sault Ste. Marie

Sault Ste. Marie 2016 Christmas Cheer

Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most!

During this holiday season, Christmas Cheer is very excited to announce that they will be able to brighten up the holidays for approximately 1,700 families in Sault Ste. Marie and the surrounding area.

That’s almost 200 more than last year!

Close to 500 volunteers come out to help on delivery day alone, including the local Army Reserves, Firefighters, Shaw Cable and many individuals, to ensure that every gift and food item is delivered to a family in need.
