“ Caring Santa”, “Santa Cares”, and “Sensory Santa*” are coming to a mall near you on November 20 and December 4 at participating malls!

Children with special needs and their families will have an opportunity to participate in the time-honored holiday tradition.  A private photo session with Santa in an environment set up to support the sensory, physical and other developmental needs of children with ALL abilities.

The malls will make some minor modifications to create a relaxing atmosphere the morning of Caring Santa, and the result of that will be a magical experience for families.  Some will walk away with their first-ever holiday photo of their child with Santa. Until now, visiting with Santa really wasn’t a reality for families of children with special needs.

All programs require registration and they do fill up fast-so hurry!
