The elves in Duchesne County helped many families this year as part of two phases of ‘Be A Santa’s Helper.’ According to Chamber Director and event coordinator Irene Hansen, 231 children in 85 families were given gifts for Christmas as part of phase one while coordinators worked with local non-profits and clergy to help another 26 families during phase two. “This year went especially smooth,” shares Hansen. “Every time we had a need, a wonderful, generous contribution would come in. We also worked with a Roosevelt Stake on a humanitarian project to collect and make blankets. They were added to many of the families [gifts] to add the perfect cozy touch.” The ‘Be A Santa’s Helper’ effort supplements families own efforts by providing an old fashioned Christmas with dolls, trucks, games, and other traditional or old fashioned gifts. Hansen says the Santa room used to store everything and distribute gifts is called the “magic room because of the wonderful tears of joy” shared there.
