Since 1948, the Stan Fowler Fund has been making Christmas a joyous time of year for families in need.

Every year, the fund raises money for food vouchers that get hand delivered to hundreds of people to ensure their families don’t go hungry at Christmas.

Since The Moose joined forces with the Schumacher Lion’s Club in 2017 with the Moose Feeding Families Radiothon, there has been over $140,000 raised, meaning almost 1,400 people had a Christmas meal that otherwise wouldn’t.

Stan Fowler thought that the community of Timmins could be better, and he aimed to make it that way. With that, the Stan Fowler Fund was born. It started over 70 years ago with an initial donation of $100 on December 6th, 1948 as a radiothon.

The tradition continues again this year on Thursday, December 2nd. The Moose FM Feeding Families Radiothon will broadcast LIVE from the Moose Studios in partnership with the Schumacher Lion’s Club.

The radiothon will happen from 6am to 6pm and by calling 705 267 2333 that day and making a donation, you’re helping ensure everyone has enough to eat this Christmas.
