Substitutes for Santa

Dec 8, 2015

Mark Your Calendar!
December 8, 2015.

Volunteer details will be available soon!

Join us for another year, as we give children in need from Loris a Christmas night to remember! Last year with the help of staff and volunteers, Subs for Santa was another success with over 90 volunteers helping 70 kids have a great Christmas experience.

This year we are looking to have over 100 volunteers to help put smiles on 100 kids faces. The evening begins at Ultimate California Pizza Game Zone on Lake Arrowhead Rd., where each child will be paired up with a volunteer. Together they will enjoy free pizza and game time. The next stop is Christmas shopping at Walmart on Hwy. 17 at Tanger Outlets.

Volunteers will accompany their children on motorcoaches to Walmart where they will assist children in picking out toys and necessities using a Walmart gift card provided. All volunteers must be preregistered. Volunteer information and details to register will be available soon.

Substitutes for Santa is completely funded by donations from the community. What we collect in donations determines what we have to give each child to spend. For monetary donations, make checks payable to:
SOS Health Care/ Subs for Santa
P.O. Box 7136, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572
