About Helping Santa

Our Mission 

Each year, thousands of Orange County families put their hopes of a Merry Christmas on “Dear Santa” letters. This year, the need will be even greater. Thousands of Dear Santa letters arrive at the post office and most will NEVER be answered…

But now there’s an answer with Helping Santa. Our volunteers select letters from the families most in need to receive gifts for Christmas.
