The Warwick Lions Club, the Warwick Valley Rotary Club, the Chosun Taekwondo Leadership Team, Glenn P. and Susan D. Dickes, the Backpack Snack Attack Program and the Warwick Reformed Church, along with many other local businesses and individuals work together each year to create a memorable holiday for local families in need. The committee works all year to put this event together. Last year over 150 families were served.
Children are treated to a party in December that includes a meal, games with prizes, a Santa photo, a professional portrait and cookie decorating. The children can choose gifts for their families from a shop that is set up with all new items and volunteers are on hand to help them wrap the gifts. Santa presents each child with a giant gift bag filled with an outfit of clothing, shoes, underwear, socks, hat and gloves, a ShopRite gift card plus a special toy chosen just for them. Transportation is provided if needed.
