Welcome to the Mat-Su Special Santa Program!
Welcome to the Mat-Su Special Santa Program. This year our workshop location is at: 4721 E. Bogard Road, Wasilla (close to the intersection of Bogard and Seldon and across from the Country Store.) Follow the signs. The building is donated by Carlile Transportation.
Over 1084 families in our Valley, from Sutton to Talkeetna, needed help with Christmas in 2011. Mat-Su Special Santa Program brings winter wear, toys, books, games, personal items and much more to the 3400 children in these families. The program began in 1997 with a few volunteers that helped 90 children. Now, in our 16th year, we organize the largest community Christmas gift-giving program in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough.
All of this is done through the generosity of our community. This year there are even more families in need and we are asking you to take part in the Mat-Su Special Santa Program.
The magic of this program is that every little bit makes a huge difference. Your donations stay in the Valley, helping our community neighbors.
We are partnering with Salvation Army to assist them with their families in need for toys and gifts. Salvation Army will provide food and refer families to Special Santa.
Please feel free to call us at 761-3770 or e-mail at email@example.com for more information. We appreciate you, and thank, you for considering us as one of the programs to benefit from your generosity.
The Special Santa Program is a Non-Profit organization under the umbrella of Alaska Family Services, a 501c3 Non-Profit Charity.
