santas helpers

DCS Santa’s Helpers would like to thank those of you personally for you very generous donations of support for our Santa’s Helpers Program. 

This year we were fortunate to have a wonderful assortment of toys donated to us, along with many DCS Staff and Community Members who sponsored children. Overall, it was an outstanding success! We were able to support 19 families and 36 children this Christmas. Thank you so much for your generosity and thoughtfulness!
