Santa Team Delivery
Click to view volunteer dates on our 2016 Calendar.
What we really, really need are teams of volunteers to deliver toys. Takes a bit more commitment (and a vehicle), but it is a lot of fun! Each Santa team delivery consists of 3 adults (minimum): 1 person to be Santa Claus (we have a complete costume for him or her), 1 person to drive, and 1 person to help Santa (since he can’t see real well wearing the wig and beard). We only dress up Santa, everyone else is on their own costume-wise. There are annual Elf Louise t-shirts for sale. If you have a large group, you can have two or three Santa teams, and we’ll put you in the same geographical area or give you an apartment complex.
Santa must be at least 18 years old and have a valid license or government issued ID. Santa must show his/her ID to check out the Santa suit! Santa suits generally fit an average sized adult. We attempt to fit all Santa sizes, but cannot guarantee a suit (especially in the smaller sizes).
Santa Teams deliver toys beginning in mid-December. Delivery times during the week are in the late afternoon to early-evening. Weekend deliveries are in the late-morning to early-afternoon. For specific delivery times and dates, please check the Calendar.
Delivering toys takes about 2-3 hours, depending on the side of town you’re delivering to. Playing “Santa” makes for a whole lot of fun with family and friends and as an added bonus, you bring the joy and spirit of Christmas to many less fortunate children.
If you haven’t delivered toys before, you should attend a “new Santa” orientation, which will give you all kinds of helpful hints on making your deliveries successful. Briefings last about an hour. Please check the Calendar schedule.
