Who We Are & What We Do
The Santa Claus Girls organization has been serving the Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN communities since 1916. Our mission is to provide toys, food, books, hats, gloves and socks to children aged 12 and under from low-income families during the holiday season.
Each family who applies for our service is approved and receives, for each child in their family aged 12 and under, a gift bag containing an age-appropriate toy, one pair of socks, one pair of gloves and a hat, a toothbrush, toothpaste, candy, a reading book and coloring book. Each family receives a gift certificate for a large pizza from the local pizzeria, Deek’s Pizza. The parents/guardians also receive a roll of wrapping paper and tape to use.
The cost of providing this small package to each child amounts to $40,000 per year. To donate to our mission in helping children click the Facebook link or scroll down and click the donate button.
By donating $25.00 you will be sponsoring a bag for one child.
