The Hyde Park & District Lions Club in partnership with The Hyde Park BIA are fortunate to present “Joy for The World” in Hyde Park on November 27th, 2021.

This event will have several ways for your family to help raise some much needed resources for the Northwest London Resource Centre in a safe, coordinated way. There will be Elves for collection of food, winter clothing, and toys for those in need in the Hyde Park area in a time when the need has been at its most.

Any proceeds from Here Comes Santa stay in the Community and will be donated to support local charities.  In the past year, Hyde Park & District Lions have made donations to such worthwhile Charities as:

  • Northwest London Resource Centre
  • London Food Bank
  • Mission Services
  • Eyes Right
  • St. Joseph’s Hospice
  • Western University Food Bank
  • Camp Dorset
  • PEPP Family Support Group
  • Diabetes Canada
  • Lions Foundation of Canada Guide Dog Program
