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. The United Way's Sub for Santa program finds families who will "sub" in for Santa and take gifts to the families in need. It is a truly incredible program that helps many people every year.

In order for the families in need to get the assistance, they need to attend an open house hosted by the United Way. Y-Serve volunteers attend the open houses and help the United Way verify documents to ensure that families with the most need receive help and that they choose appropriate presents for their children. Without our volunteers, the community program wouldn't be able to do what it does!
