Update Saturday December 23: Santa Express is sold out and has closed for the holiday season.
Santa Express is a holiday retail store for all kids in our community, many of whom make this shopping experience part of their Holiday tradition. The proceeds from the store benefit the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, a safe shelter for kids who are in crisis situations.
The store is open to young shoppers between the ages of 4 and 12, with gifts ranging in price from only $.50 to $8.00. Children are paired with and “elf” to help them shop for everyone on their list.
Over 800 Santa “Elf” volunteers are on hand throughout the season to help the children shop and wrap their gifts, while the “grownups” shop in the front of the store, a boutique of specialty items perfect for stocking stuffers or gifts for family, friends or secret Santas.
