Santa’s Helpers 2016
In December of 2016 the M&S family participated in Santa’s Helpers’ 14th 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 54 children in 25 different families. Along with gifting toys and clothes to each child, the families also received a gift card for groceries. Families, friends, and Helpers 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, Santa was able to come by and meet each of the children.
Santa’s Helpers were also able to make larger Christmas wishes a reality by donating items such as computers, TVs, dining room sets, couches, beds, high chairs, and car seats.
