Sensory Santa 2020 is a wrap

This year Sensory Santa was one of the most challenging so far. 
We where able to visit with 10 families this year at our two events this year. This years sensory santa we used 15 minute visit slots where the families meet Santa, Mrs. Cluas, and the Grinch. During part of the visit the children done a craft with Santa's crew making a ornament to take home. 

One of the amazing parts of Sensory Santa has been seeing how some of the children have started to be a friend of santa from their first visit's 3 years ago. This year we did meet a few new families and was reminded of why we started sensory santa.

Special Thank you to 
Oriental Trading, and Community Support.
