The Secret Santa program for Melbourne students is 9 years old! This year, we served 155 students from Sabal, Creel, and Harbor City elementary.
Thanks to the support of our sustainers, actives, and the community we were able to donate items such as clothing and hygiene products, books, and school supplies. Each child also got a toy and a few stocking stuffers. The total value of presents this year was over $15,000.
Special thanks to:
