Santa’s Workshop

Present Sorting

Every year, we try to make Christmas special for about 175 children. Presents are gathered from parishes, angel trees, and individual families. They start arriving at Simple House the second week of December.

Each year a single volunteer is appointed to play the role of Santa and manage all of the gifts/distribution. This year, that responsibility fell to Joseph.

After weeks of sorting and balancing the gifts within families, the fun part is delivering them.
