The London Santa Claus Parade provides support for many charitable organizations;
Last year 14,742 lbs of food was collected for the London Food Bank and nearly 2,700 Brand New Teddy Bears were donated to the London Salvation Army. Donations were also given to Shriner organizations which support Children in Hospitals across Canada. Woman's Rural Resource Centre which provides support for abused Women & Children. And, My Sisters Place which provides support for woman that deal with a variety of issues.
The organizers are volunteers that spend countless hours away from family to produce a parade for the children of London. The parade is not funded in any part by the Government or by the City of London. Each year, the parade relies solely on corporate sponsorships and community participation to survive ~ Sponsors, Volunteers and Participants are always needed.
