Santa's Cause

individual Volunteers and Groups


Most volunteers will be selecting toys, wrapping, or delivering gifts. All ages are good at these tasks! Your entire time can be spent wrapping gifts or if you prefer, you can spend your time delivering gifts—or you can do a little of both!

Each gift will be delivered with the message that our Savior, Jesus Christ, was born for us and that is why we celebrate. Our goal is simply to deliver that Good News and not to recruit to a church or faith or to distribute information of any kind during our deliveries. Please be aware that we cannot predict with absolute accuracy what will need to be done on a certain day. The amount of requests, number of volunteers, and weather can all affect our plans. For example, we sometimes finish delivering early and may only need help cleaning or organizing. Please keep that in mind when making plans so your group is prepared to help with a variety of tasks. If it's close to the last day of our schedule, it's a good idea to call ahead or check our Facebook page for updates to make sure we still need help.

We ask that all groups of more than 10  schedule via email to The preferred timeframe for kids and teens to volunteer is 60 to 90 minutes. Rules for safety and efficiency will be posted in our warehouse, and we ask that all adults and sponsors help enforce those rules. Minors must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Someone in your group will need to play Santa when delivering gifts. We can provide a suit that will need to be returned to us, or one can be purchased for a small donation. Santa needs to be male, over 18, and needs to have several adult helpers. Several car loads can go on the deliveries, but we ask that you take turns going into the houses so that the families are not overwhelmed with large crowds at one time.

ways to Donate

Toy Donations and Toy Drives

We accept new, unwrapped toys and gladly welcome your company sponsoring a toy drive on our behalf. 

Sponsoring Letters

We have many requests each year from individuals or companies who would like to sponsor a family by providing the items requested (and usually much more!) for us to deliver. These items need to be brought to us early in December for us to coordinate with our deliveries.  Please contact us via email at if you are interested in sponsoring a letter. 


We can always use new calculators for school-aged children. We deliver them at the request of metro area teachers who tell us that many students are unable to afford their own and fall behind in math, and subsequently other subjects as a result.

We can always use new Bibles, any size gloves, hats, socks, underwear, coats, blankets, any kind of balls, Legos, baby dolls, remote-controlled cars, and wrapping paper.
