A Visit From Saint Nicholas

Website

On December 6th, Saint Nicholas arrives by police helicopter or cruiser to visit 4,400 children from low income families in eleven Tucson schools. Each child receives a backpack filled with five toys, a coloring book, another book, and a toothbrush. Saint Nicholas and the volunteers tell about St. Nicholas’ legendary generosity. This is a community effort bringing together in the spirit of St. Nicholas,the police department, businesses and individuals to provide what may be the only gifts many children receive.
