“The generosity provided by those answering the ‘Dear Santa’ letters will be the only Christmas these children have,” said Kaisa Newhams, founder of Operation Santa. “Additionally, without the continued help of Westy, we would not be able to continue to expand our effort to include more and more children each year. Westy’s assistance in providing a drop off location, secure storage and delivery of the donations, greatly reduces the logistical challenges of the program, thereby allowing us to focus more attention on the children and their needs.”
