Area Charity Now Is The One In Immediate Need

A local nonprofit organization that helps thousands of children in need each year now finds itself needing assistance. The Believe in Santa Foundation, a charitable organization, will be without a place to store all the toys, sporting goods, electronics and other items that it gives to children all year round.

For more than a year, the organization has been able to store presents in a 10-foot-by-10-foot, climate-controlled storage unit in Royal Palm Beach. But the storage facility’s recent sale to a new company has been met with a notice to vacate the unit. The nonprofit had to have everything packed up and moved out by Saturday, Oct. 8.

“This creates an incredible hardship for us,” said Keith Carson, president of the Believe in Santa Foundation. “It’s urgent that we find a new North Pole for these gifts. We hope another local business will step up and be a partner.”

The foundation helps children in need any time of year with visits from Santa Claus. For more info., visit
