Much like the real Santa Claus, our mission for Student Santas is to answer every letter that is sent, and make every child’s Christmas wish come true. There are many families in the community who need help putting presents under the tree. Some have as many as eight kids who are in need of coats. Others need help putting food on the table for Christmas dinner. Many families struggle to make it through the year, and Christmas is an extra financial burden they can’t take on by themselves.
Student Santas is unique because we read every single letter received and personally deliver donations to the families. Even things like diapers, shoes, bedding, and medical shampoo help make life a little easier for these families. We are a very personal charity that responds to the specific needs of each child and family.
Christmas is especially important for children. It’s a time of hope… to show them that there is magic and generosity in the world. For kids growing up in a low-income environment it is especially important to provide Christmas with gifts their parents didn’t have to stress over. Through the kindness of strangers we can give everyone a merry holiday, and the promise of a brighter future.
