It was loads of cheer and gifts at the annual Winter Wonderland celebration on Dec. 15 at Interfaith Medical Center, as Santa and his merry band of elves stopped by.
The healing center ushered in the holiday season by inviting children from surrounding schools and daycare centers to meet with Santa and find out who was naughty and who was nice.
The children were rewarded for a good year and received a gift and snap pix with the Jolly Old Man himself.
“Winter Wonderland and Secret Santa have become holiday traditions for Interfaith,” said LaRay Brown, president and chief executive officer. “For many families it’s not easy to provide gifts for their children, and what should be a joyous time can become stressful. Thanks to our sponsors and the Interfaith Auxiliary, we’re able to relieve some of that burden and bring joy to youngsters in our community during this season of giving.”
Standing O says “Thank you, Interfaith.”
