Santa’s Helpers Is Back!
Calling all elves! Christmas is just around the corner and Santa needs your help! JCI Santa Clarita, affectionately known as the Jaycees, has kicked off their annual holiday project – Santa’s Helpers – which provides an unforgettable Christmas to underprivileged youths in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Twenty years ago, the founding Santa Clarita Jaycees wanted to establish a way to give back to the community during the holiday season and Santa’s Helpers was born. In its early years, the Jaycees organized a toy drive to fulfill the wishes of children who wrote to Santa. Their gifts were then delivered by Jaycees who dressed up as Santa and his merry elves on Christmas Eve.
Currently serving over 200 children each year, Santa’s Helpers expanded its traditional toy drive to include a Christmas party for Santa Clarita Valley’s underprivileged families. At the Christmas Party, the children will get to meet Santa and his merry elves, ice skate (many their first time) and enjoy a variety of other fun and festive activities.
JCI Santa Clarita appreciates its longtime partners – The Magazine of Santa Clarita, The Paseo Club, and the Valencia Ice Station – who continually aid in providing a memorable Christmas for many of these families. However, the Jaycees cannot do it alone!
