Tropical Santa Visits With Patients At Palms West Hospital

The Believe in Santa Foundation’s “Tropical Santa” recently visited the Children’s Hospital at Palms West, bringing smiles to the young patients.

Santa was able to spend quality time with each hospitalized child to brighten their day. He delivered presents, posed for photos, listened to Christmas wishes and spoke one-on-one with each child.

With the cold climate at the North Pole, a more “Tropical Santa” loves spending his down time in South Florida.

“Our organization helps children in need any time of year with visits from Santa due to a child living in poverty, being the victim of a crime, a disaster survivor, hospitalized, terminally ill or the child of one of our brave military servicemen or women,” explained Keith Carson, president of the Believe in Santa Foundation.

The Believe in Santa Foundation is a Boynton Beach based all-volunteer nonprofit organization focused on improving the lives of children. Without any expectation of compensation, the organization is dedicated to serving all children in need. To learn more, visit
