Santa’s Helpers 2015
On December 19th, 2015 the MSJ family participated in Santa’s Helpers’ 13th annual picnic, an event organized by a group of friends that aims to make Christmas brighter for local families in need. With the help of their families, friends, and coworkers, Santa’s Helpers were able to fulfill Christmas wishes for 38 children in 17 different families. Aside from gifting toys and clothes to each child, the families also received a $250 gift card for groceries. Once again, picnic attendees enjoyed jumping in a bounce house, having their faces painted, and watching a performance by The Darlings of Palm Springs North Elementary. Best of all, each child had a chance to meet Santa.
Aside from the clothes, toys, and gift cards, Santa’s Helpers were able to make larger Christmas wishes a reality by donating computers, TVs, dining room sets, couches, beds, high chairs, and car seats.
