It all started in 1949 on the streets of Sudbury...
"Members of the Sudbury Chapter of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartets" pitched in to help the Salvation Army fill their "Cheer Pots". They entertained in front of four collection stands singing Christmas carols outdoors in downtown Sudbury. The objective was to raise $500.  In 1951 there were 300 children being helped by the Barbershoppers Christmas Toy Drive. The original idea grew to stage and radio shows and by 1951, the Barbershoppers Christmas Toy Drive had become a Christmas institution.
