Santa made an early visit to Shriners Hospitals for Children that brought joy and smiles to patients and their families on Christmas Eve.

Santa surprised patients and families when he suddenly appeared during a special Christmas Eve lunch at the hospital. 

According to the hospital, all of the children including, patients and their siblings received toys and games as gifts.

Families also received special gift bags.  

“It’s never a happy time to be in the hospital, especially over the holidays.  We do everything we can to make our patients’ stay here the best possible and let the children be children,” said Manager Cindy DeSerna. 

“We want to put smiles on everyone’s face," she continued. "Thanks to our generous donors we are able to go above and beyond.”
