Santa Claus Inc. has added a new partner new to its services: the Friends of Santa Claus Inc.

Speaking to the Kiwanis Club of Highland on Thursday, Jan. 29, Santa Claus Inc. Executive Director Karen DiCarlo said the organization is partnering with other nonprofit agencies in this fundraising arm.

Santa Claus Inc. serves the needy, not only at Christmas, but year round, delivering to over 55,000 last year, she said.

She added they have given 27,000 pairs of Skechers shoes to schools in the area, and expect to make that 30,000 pairs this year.

They have gifts pouring in from many major stores, and expect that to increase with the partnership with 35 to 40 other nonprofit agencies.

She showed many of the donations, including home made clothes, quilts, books and toys that are donated for the less fortunate.

The organization plans to continue a distribution in the spring this year, DiCarlo said.

We are looking for volunteers, she added. With so many donations and so many clients, there is need for more people to help out. Remember 99% of all who help Santa Claus, Inc. are volunteers.

She said they get nearly a million dollars worth of in-kind donations.

The Santa Claus, Inc. workshoppe is open every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and the first Friday of each month and by special appointment at 824 East 6th St., San Bernardino.
