Have you heard of the Santa that will come to your house for FREE? I know it sounds too good to be true, but I promise it isn’t! Northwest Santa is in its 5th year of sending St.Nick out for personal visits. Santa will come for a home visit with children under 10 or children with special needs of any age. This year his sleigh is making stops December 20th-24th in Puyallup, Orting, Sumner, Bonney Lake, and JBLM. His visits are absolutely free, though he is glad to accept donations for the food bank.
Can you imagine what a thrill this would be for your little one? I think it’s a particularly great opportunity if you have a child with special needs or sensory issues who can’t handle the, “Busy,” of a traditional Santa visit, but it is open to absolutely any child on Santa’s route, and I can’t think of any who wouldn’t be thrilled! You can get much more information and answers to any questions you might have about the Santa visits right here.
Now, the sign up is different this year. It opens Thanksgiving, and you’ll want to check back here. I do think spots will go fast, so you might want to make a plan to carve out some time on turkey day to sign up if you want to bring St. Nick to your place. If you would like to help bring this magic to more children, this is an all volunteer group, and yes-they would love the help! They need wrappers, drivers, donations of toys, money, and time! Get all that information on their Facebook page.
Reader Olive has had Santa to her home several years and tipped me off to this great program originally. If you had Santa come to your house last year, leave a comment. I’d love to read your reviews!
