Santa and Elves visit children with disabilities in Regina to wish them a very Merry Christmas
SaskTel in conjunction with the SaskTel Pioneers, members of the Telephone Pioneers of America, Prairie Council, are pleased to be hosting the 26th annual Santa’s visit for children with disabilities today in Regina.
This year 22 children from various schools from Regina will be invited to visit with Santa Claus face-to-face.
The event will be held at the Ramada Hotel and Convention Centre
1818 Victoria Avenue, on Thursday December 4th.
Visits with Santa are from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Boardroom on the 2nd floor
Christmas activities start in the Oak Room with the children and elves on the main floor at 8:30 a.m.
The Santa’s Face-to-Face event provides the children with a safe, non-threatening environment in which they can enjoy a personalized visit with Santa Claus and the undivided attention of a dedicated elf. We focus entirely on the children’s well-being and enjoyment by providing a secure, accessible environment with individual attention for each child.
The children are greeted by their dedicated elf and begin their morning of Christmas activities. While they await their visit with Santa, they will meet with Mrs. Claus, participate in face painting, ballooning, sing-a-longs, colouring, games, dancing, visiting with special guests, enjoying treats and presents. Volunteers (SaskTel Employee’s and SaskTel Pioneer’s) act as elves, musicians, dancers, craft makers, and help out where needed.
This community event benefits and enriches all those who take the opportunity to become involved.
