The VOCM Happy Tree Campaign is a well-known Christmas tradition. For 45 years, VOCM and the VOCM Cares Foundation have partnered with the Salvation Army and Avalon Mall to keep this tradition alive. This fundraiser helps to collect and distribute toys and gifts for children in need throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
Each year, “Happy” (The Happy Tree) is housed at The Avalon Mall leading up to Christmas. Shoppers love to visit “Happy” and leave unwrapped presents next to the tree. These donations help ensure children in our province do not receive an empty stocking on Christmas morning. After a well-deserved rest, Happy is ready to spread the Christmas giving. Donations can be made now until December 23.
In addition to the Happy Tree itself, we also host an annual Happy Tree Concert in support of our Happy Tree campaign.
