Thank you!

Thank you to everyone that came out and had their pictures taken with Santa and donated to the food shelf. We raised about $140. This was the first year we had Santa at our store and we had a great response and plan on having him in the years to come. My daughter even had her picture taken and I don't think it could have turned out any better! Thanks again, and Happy Holidays!
