Meet Santa In July And Help A Child In Need

It will be Christmas in July on Saturday, July 26, all to benefit children in need. The toy drive and special event will feature a special appearance by Santa Claus.

It all happens at Toys ’R’ Us, located at 450 South State Road 7. Take advantage of special one-day offers from the retailer during the toy drive organized to help a local charitable organization, the Believe in Santa Foundation.

Look for the Blue Bell Ice Cream trailer and get free ice cream when you donate a new, unwrapped toy, or make a financial contribution to the local charity. Members of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office will also be there to help get children enrolled in the Child ID Program.

Sponsored by 97.9 WRMF (broadcasting live), the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Toys ’R’ Us and Blue Bell Ice Cream, the July 26 event will run from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Santa Claus will be stopping by from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. to take photos, spend time with the children, and greet shoppers and donors of new, unwrapped toys.

“We are so excited that such great companies and organizations will be helping us help children,” said Keith Carson, president of the Believe in Santa Foundation. “We help children in need any time of year with visits from Santa. This will go a long way in helping our efforts.”

The Believe in Santa Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in Boynton Beach. It’s an all-volunteer organization focused on improving children’s lives. Without any expectation of compensation, the foundation is dedicated to serving all children in need.
