Welcome Neighbor STL will be hosting the 2nd Annual Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 8 and our goal is to make sure that every child attending receives a gift from Santa that day. Can you help make that happen? Below is a listing of the children attending and their gift wishes – gifts of $20 and under.

Please sign up for one or more of the gifts below and deliver your unwrapped gifts to #9 Crestwood Drive, Clayton, MO 63105 by December 1st, tagged with the child’s name and age. The gifts will be organized, wrapped and tagged before the party. For questions about delivery, contact Lily Ott at [email protected] or 314-322-7996. Should you need items picked up, please contact Janice Seele at [email protected].

Thank you for your support and for making this event special for our refugee families. The party is secular and the spirit welcomes all to enjoy this season of giving and gathering.
