Thanks to everyone for another wonderful and very successful 2016 Santa's Workshop at Sacred Heart Catholic Church!
We had the pleasure of having 163 kids from around Eldon and surrounding areas come and shop for gifts for their loved ones! The 21 wrappers were busy wrapping over 815 gifts. We had 25 elves who helped the children shop. Also Santa was very busy greeting, giving out goodies and taking pictures with the children and infants!
We had close to 150 volunteers/participants who helped with the set up, make cookies, decorate, donate items, cash donations, registration, musicians/entertainment, elves, wrappers, extra help where needed, pass out milk and cookies to the children and clean up. Everyone who worked and shopped had a wonderful time! We had about a dozen of volunteers that were not from our parish who donated items, gave cash donations and came to help wrap. It was a very moving and heartfelt day! These are just a few of the photos from the day.
