Virtual Visits with Santa

Volunteer to dress up and chat with kids.


Our annual holiday celebrations for Erie House kids will look very different this year.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, our gift wrapping event and breakfast with Santa will unfortunately not be taking place this year. But we still want to celebrate our kids and bring them some much needed joy this holiday season!

Instead of in-person events, we will have as many of our kids' gifts as possible delivered directly to their homes. And instead a large breakfast event with Santa, families will receive a scheduled grocery delivery with all the ingredients to make a great holiday breakfast at home. We'll also schedule times for our kids to be able to visit with Santa via Zoom!

Learn more about about how you can get involved with our 2020 Holidays with Heart Virtual Celebration Week below.

Help us give our kiddos and families a joyful and fun-filled holiday season.
