The HOT SHOTS Street Hockey Tournament, sponsored by Activa, features entertainment, prizes, silent auction, BBQ, and Canada’s favourite pastime—hockey.  Register online to play!

You don’t have to play in the tournament to enjoy the day!

Visit the Street Fair with your family or volunteer at the event.

 

Throughout the year, the following signature events are used to foster community awareness, engagement and financial support of programs to help children and families heal, learn and grow. Come out and join us!

Activa HOT SHOTS Street Hockey Tournament ....May
Join us at the Kitchener Auditorium parking lot for a fun day of street hockey for all ages! Families will enjoy the Street Fair too. Funds raised at this event help send kids to camp. Get your game on!

Back to School Backpack Campaign.........................................July - September
Help us get kids ready to learn! Our Back to School Backpack campaign provides school supplies and backpacks to children in need as they return to school in the fall.

Holiday Support Program........................................................October - December
Can you imagine not having enough food on your table or gifts under the tree during the holiday season? Unfortunately this is a reality for many families we serve. You can make the season so much brighter for a family by providing food, clothing and gifts from a family's wishlist.

Deck the Walls ........................................................................November - December
Deck the Walls with Trees of Hope is a fun, interactive campaign to kick start the holiday season. This in-store promotion asks customers to donate a Toonie to the CHYM Tree of Hope. In exchange for their donation, customers get a colourful paper tree to write their name on and have displayed at the store; creating a colourful display of giving. All supplies are provided; let the community's generous spirit decorate your store for the holiday season!

96.7 CHYM Tree of Hope .........................................................December
The CHYM Tree of Hope is the Foundation's signature fundraising event, and we look forward to it all year long! Listen to 96.7 CHYM FM on the day of the Radiothon for inspiration taken from the work that FACS does all year long with local families and children. Youth and families tell their stories of personal healing, learning and growth. You may be inspired to make a donation in support of the ongoing work of FACS in our community!
