Tell your friends and family! Spreading holiday cheer only works when everyone does it together! We need as many as people to come together and make sure everyone is smiling this holiday season!

Throw some change in our donation cans! If you live in Maynard or in surrounding towns, chances are you’ve seen some donation cans in local businesses. By putting the 16 cents that you just got back from the cashier is one more bite of a cookie or one more laugh that you just gave a family. Every cent counts.

Watch the telethon! We raise money, but we also provide 40 hours of non-stop entertainment to you, the viewer. We wouldn’t be the Beacon Santa Telethon without raising money, but we also wouldn’t be the Beacon Santa Telethon without the telethon! Get comfy and listen or watch live online, on TV or on the radio!
