KCAL 9 News – Holliday’s Helping Hands 2023 Toy Drive


An exciting day in San Pedro where Santa made a special stop. The nonprofit Holidays Helping Hands invited Santa to their holiday event. Children from formerly unhoused families got to meet Santa and take photos with him. Santa gave out toys and they also had a chance to pick out other toys that they wanted.

CEO and founder of Holliday's Helping Hands, Katina Holliday, said, "We're excited to be here. We've done this for several years. Not only do we do that, we bring out our black Santa, which is important, and we like doing that. We also have another special guest today, the Grinch. So we're excited about what we're doing here today."

The event included decorating gingerbread houses as well as playing games.
