Mat-Su Special Santa Program 2018
The Mat-Su Special Santa is the largest gift giving program in the Valley. It started in 1997 with 90 children receiving gifts. Last Christmas the program brought toys, winter wear, books, sporting equipment and blankets to over 3,760 Valley children from 1,279 families. Now in its 22nd year the program has given gifts to over 31,000 children in the Valley. Special Santa is under the umbrella of Alaska Family Services, a 501c3 Non-Profit Charity.
The magic of this program is that every donation makes a huge difference and 100% of it goes to help families. For more information you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website at www.specialsanta.net. Forms are on the white board and at the front desk!
Did You Know?
Peru grows more than 55 varieties of corn!
When you go to a market in Peru, you can just about find corn in any color including yellow, purple, white and black. Famous for their giant kernels, most restaurants and bars served roasted corn to munch on at the table when you first sit down.
