The Union Leader Santa Fund is a community tradition that has supported the Salvation Army for 54 years. The Santa Fund was first established at the Post Office Fruit in Manchester after a chance 1959 meeting between the Salvation Army major and the then-editor of the Union Leader.

In its first year, the Santa Fund brought in $1,000 to support the Salvation Armyís Christmas effort. Since then, the Santa Fund has raised $7.3 million, thanks to the generosity of the community and local businesses. Santa Fund dollars continue to provide warm clothing, meals and toys during the holidays, as well as support Kidsí Cafť, summer camps and other critical programs throughout the year.
