Old St. Nick himself was on a special mission of charity across the U.S., surprising hundreds of disadvantaged and underprivileged children in more than a dozen cities!
With the help of official sponsors NOM Entertainment Group, Victory Sports Global Outreach, The OSC Charitable Foundation, The James D. Rielly Foundation, as well as The Salvation Army, other organizations and individual volunteers, a special wish list was assembled this year from children’s charitable groups around the country, and St. Nick offered to make a special trip on Wednesday, December 6, to fulfill those wishes.
The wishes came from kids of all ages who are in some way faced with limitations. Many of the youth are without families, or their families are confronted with economic challenges, but the children would still like to participate in community and recreational activities and need help to do so. “St. Nick’s Holiday Mission” brought needed cheer for these kids this holiday season. The goal of “St. Nick’s Holiday Mission” is to help them get more active, as well as provide a positive alternative to the streets, violence and video games — all the while, passing on the tradition of St. Nick’s legendary generosity to the youth of today.
From 2:00 PM – 10:00 PM (EST), St. Nick surprised children in city after city in the U.S.. Some of his visits included Gateway-Longview and Baker Victory Services Homes of Charity in Buffalo, NY, Operation Stand Down Rhode Island in Johnston, RI, Pottstown Police Athletic League outside Philadelphia, The Salvation Army Center of Hope in Winston-Salem, NC, Extra Special People in Watkinsville, GA and The Boys and Girls Clubs of Dallas, TX, as well as unique charitable organizations in several other cities. He also made very special surprise visits to the homes of deserving children whose families have fallen on hard times this holiday season.
