An Annual Tradition | Santa's Workshop

The Board of Directors and Staff of the Thomas County Community Foundation would like to thank the many people and businesses who donated gifts for this special day. Our gratitude is also extended to the volunteers, many of whom share their time year after year. Without the generosity and involvement of the entire community, this event would not be possible. Please contact Executive Director Barry Kaaz if you'd like to give a donation or volunteer your time next year. Not only does this charitable event give children the opportunity to purchase affordable gifts for their parents, grandparents and adult parental guardians, but proceeds are also given back to the community to help with immediate needs and concerns.
