KEN DEINES' EDMONTON VINTAGE SANTAS ANONYMOUS

History

The mission of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous is simple: to see every child receive a new toy at Christmas. Since Jerry Forbes founded the charity in 1955, that mission has stayed the same.

Ken Deines grew up in Edmonton listening to 630 CHED days and always thought Santas Anonymous was a good idea.  He started delivering gifts a few years back with his kids and that carries on today.  Ken started driving as a donation pickup driver in 2016 which led him to think that VINTAGE could participate as well. 


Vintage involvement in Santas Anonymous began in the winter of 2017 with donation boxes set up by Ken Deines at the Kinsmen Arenas entrance for the Hope Challenge Mini Tournament. Donation boxes were set out for the following 3 hockey sessions.
