On Friday December 14th, over 40 of Santa’s Helpers will be singing and raising money throughout Chittenden County. Each Santa or Elf is required to raise pledges in order to participate. The money raised goes to help support those in need during this holiday season.
Local community members will be visiting participating restaurants, singing carols and passing the Santa Sack for donations. This year they will also make stops to entertain at the Ronald McDonald House Christmas Party and the Fletcher Allen Children’s Inpatient Unit.
Since 1998 Santa Night Burlington has been helping organizations, people and even animals throughout the greater Chittenden County area. Each year our reach has grown to include many different Non-Profits, families and individuals.
The money we raise has helped families to stay in their homes, put food on a table, provided young children with gifts and parents with the gift of knowing there is someone who is there to lend a helping hand, expecting nothing in return.
We have provided help for the end of life care for some who were terminal, helped to ease the pain for those needing financial assistance with travel costs in order to save a child, and have anonymously paid Vet bills to keep a family member from being euthanized simply due to lack of money.
There are so many wonderful individuals who just needed someone to reach out and make a difference during a time of need. We are very happy Santa Night could be there to help.
Through the generous support from all those who have participated, made a donation, or opened your doors to allow us a place to entertain your customers and spread our Holiday Spirit. Santa Night has been able to make a significant difference in the lives of thousands.
Below is a list of just some of the Non-Profit organizations we have been fortunate enough to help.
