To buy, wrap and deliver gifts to indigent, homeless, poor, and serious ill children and their families during the December holidays. A 100% volunteer organization.
A 100% volunteer organization that has put smiles on children's faces for over 40 years. For most of these families the gifts that Santa or Mordihi Manorrha brings are all they will receive. We receive referals from local organizations such as Legal Advocates for Abused Women; school social workers; children's hospitals; Dream factory; Family and Children's services (both nonsectarian and Jewish); BBBS; Interfaith Housing; homeless shelters. Each child receives at least five gifts, one of which is a stocking filled with smaller gifts and one of which is an age appropriate book, the rest toys, or clothes if requested. Everyone in the family receives presents.
Santa's Helpers is an amazing organization. We originally found it when searching VolunteerMatch for volunteer opportunities for children. Rita and her team have a contagious (in a good way!) passion for helping children during the holidays. They are very organized, and always have appropriate tasks for the children and adults when we arrive to volunteer. We can't wait to help deliver toys to children over the holidays.
