In 1955, Jerry Forbes and his team at 1080 CHED organized the first Santas Anonymous campaign. In his radio messages, Jerry clearly outlined his vision for the charity; he wanted to make sure that each child in Edmonton had a new toy at Christmas. It was a simple concept that was eagerly embraced by the community. Over the years, 1080 CHED became 630 CHED and the city grew from 200,000 people to nearly a million, however the essence of our mission never changed. The mission of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous was inspired by a simple wish to see every child receive a new toy at Christmas. Throughout the years, the staff of 630 CHED and volunteers from our community have worked together to make this wish come true.
