A committee of board members and volunteers meet several weeks before Christmas to decide who The Dear Santa Society will provide assistance to during the holidays. Eligibility is determined by assessing a family’s level of financial hardship. A significant percentage of beneficiaries are referrals from qualified public assistance agencies and publicly-funded non-profit agencies; however, beneficiaries can be any family that meets the criteria set forth.

“In helping others we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give completes the circle and comes back to us.”
-Flora Edwards

It all began by collecting over $1,000 from friends and families – people just like you. At the post office we read and answered 8 letters addressed to Santa, creating very special holiday memories for the families. Since then, The Dear Santa Society has helped over 1,600 families – families in our neighborhoods.
