Santa’s Helpers 2017

In December of 2017 the M&S family participated in the celebration of Santa’s Helpers’ 15th anniversary 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 51 children in 23 different families. Each family also received a gift card for groceries. The celebration included a bounce house, face painting, and a performance from The Darlings of Palm Springs North Elementary. To top it all off, the children each got a chance to meet Santa, himself!

Santa’s Helpers were also able to make larger Christmas wishes a reality by donating items such as computers, TVs, furniture, dining room sets, couches, beds, high chairs, and car seats.
