It’s our mission to help take the pressure off struggling parents and ensure no child worries about Santa missing their home this year.”

C4K, established over 25 years ago to address community needs, officially became a registered charity in 2012. In 2022, the organization assisted 191 families—more than 700 people—in the local community.
