Sandy Springs Solidarity needs more secret Santas

Sandy Springs Solidarity’s Secret Santa returns for the holiday season to provide a special Christmas morning to children living in the community.

The generosity of a Jamestown real estate investment company has moved Santa’s Workshop from Solidarity to the former Office Depot located at 5934 Roswell Road in the Whole Foods shopping center. According to the release, the weekend will take place from December 9 to 11.

Families, friends, companies and other organizations can adopt a family online. “Solidarity” collected clothing sizes, favorite colors and asked what things children would like to wake up with on Christmas morning.

Anyone who wants to help but can’t go shopping can make a donation and a Solidarity team member will shop for the family.

Solidarity offered a minimum of $50 per child and a maximum of $100. For children who have requested more expensive gifts, a gift card is offered to help the child save on the item.

While many families have been selected by community members, many others remain unfilled and can be found by scrolling through the entire list of families. A few examples are included:

  • Family No. 393 with seven children: Litsa (girl, 14 years old), Yatsira (girl, 11 years old), Junior (boy, 7 years old), Sammy (girl, 4 years old), Yakov (6 years old). -year-old boy), Daniel (4-year-old boy), Maria (6-year-old girl)
  • Family #397, three children: Isis (girl, 12 years old), Osiris (boy, 11 years old), Logan (boy, 7 years old)
  • Family #398, also with three children, Lilibeth (15-year-old girl), Alondra (14-year-old girl), Stephanie (16-year-old girl)

Donors are asked to leave gifts, wrapped or unwrapped, in a bag or container that can be stored in a pantry, with the family number prominently displayed. The smaller bags inside should contain each child’s gifts clearly labeled with the family’s name and number. Gifts should be dropped off at the former Office Depot at 5934 Roswell Road, known this year as the Solidarity Christmas Workshop.

Departure dates:

  • Friday, December 9: 3-8 p.m
  • Saturday, December 10: 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m

For community members who would like to become a “wrapping elf” or help with receiving and distributing gifts, register online on the “Solidarity” website.
