Breakfast with Santa is a magical time for our patients and their families. Many times, children with special healthcare needs can’t visit Santa in a traditional mall setting, because of the long lines, over stimulation to lights/sounds, difficulty to travel with large medical equipment, and most importantly during the current pandemic – potential exposure to deadly viruses and other health concerns.
Due to the pandemic, Positively Kids held the 2020 Breakfast with Santa via a drive-thru event. Each child received a teddy bear donated by Assistance League, a $25 gift card donated by Smith’s, and 3-4 presents specially selected by Santa’s elves and employees of IGT and WestPac Wealth. Additional thanks go to Jim Marsh Kia for hosting a toy drive.
Location and details for Breakfast with Santa 2021 are still being discussed with Santa. It is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, Dec 19th. Due to the special health concerns for the children and their families, the event committee will continue to monitor the pandemic situation to determine the type of event. Check back for updates.
