Santa & Mrs. Claus…
have been visiting Gresham and the Portland area during the off season, for more than 30 years. During that time they have fallen in love with Gresham and Portland. In fact, they loved it so much they decided to open a secret way-station in Gresham. What is a way-station you may ask? Well, I’ll tell you! Most people believe that when Santa leaves the North Pole on Christmas Eve, he is carrying all the toys for every child he visits. Not True! You see, Santa’s trip is broken into sections. When he completes each section, he lands in a secret spot to reload, feed the reinderr and rest a few minutes. A way-station might be a field on a farm, an empty football stadium or even the top of Mt. Everest! We can’t tell you where the way-station in Gresham is but we can tell you that wherever there is a weigh station, Santa and Mrs. Claus also open a charity! Here in Gresham, it is Secret Santa Charities!
Now, via a partnership with Secret Santa Charities, they are working to give back to the community they have come to love and enjoy. Santa, Mrs. Claus, the Elves and all the human helpers involved with the charity donate their time. This means that 100% of every dollar donated and that they earn from their services goes back out to the community via Secret Santa Charities.
SSC uses donated funds and the revenues raised by Santa and Mrs. C’s activities to do such things as feed and clothe the homeless, provide gifts to needy children and feed struggling families during the holidays. Many local families who have fallen on hard times have known the holiday magic of having Santa show up on their doorstep with presents and food for the entire family. This is thanks to the efforts of Santa, Mrs. Claus, the Elves and Secret Santa Charities. We hope that you’ll help us continue to spread holiday joy by hiring Santa and Mrs. Claus to be a part of your holiday magic!
