What is Sub for Santa?

Every year, hundreds of families from the local community don't have the financial means to provide Christmas for their children. Sub for Santa is a program that finds other families in the community to "sub" in for Santa and bring these families Christmas - it is a truly incredible program that helps so many people every year.


In order for these families to get this assistance, they need to attend one of several workshops hosted by the United Way. In the workshops, documents will be verified to ensure that families with the most need receive help and that they choose appropriate presents for their children. This is where we need your help! Students run these workshops so that these families can get the aid they need. Without us, the program wouldn't be able to do what it does!
