A Note From Santa

Dear Friends:

This Christmas is my 38th year of being a volunteer Santa serving the community at large.  It is hard to believe our Santa program has surpassed nearly four decades of service. Over the years, as Santa, I have visited over 300,000 people and have given out that many candy canes and over 280,000 stuffed animals of all types.  Generous contributions from people like you have made this ministry possible, allowing me to take advantage of the best possible pricing.  This charitable program relies 100 % on your gifts.  All of my time is donated and I do not receive any monetary remuneration for being Santa to so many.   Your gift is appreciated.

 In 2005 Santa John was recognized with an award from President Bush for 25 years of outstanding service as a volunteer to our community.

 As Santa I see people that are disadvantaged, handicapped, old, sick and dying with ages ranging from 3 hours to 103 years old.  This past Christmas season I saw 4,500 people and made 100 appearances.  During this time I gave away over 4,000 little animals and 5,000 candy canes, assorted candy and a few gifts.  Johnathan, my grandson, is a second generation Santa and sees people as well. We have written down some of the most touching stories and you may have a copy of them if you wish.     Click Here to View Santa Stories
