Some 300 families with 800 children from 10 local schools are expected to receive Christmas gifts. Arvada K-8, Campbell, Fremont, Lawrence, Little, Parr, Peck, Swanson, Thomas and Vanderhoof are the schools taking part this year.
The event is organized by Arvada Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth and the Arvada-Jefferson Kiwanis Club.
Liaisons at schools are working to connect families with the program. Donations of new toys and new or gently used books can be made until Dec. 2. Monetary donations can be made at ajkiwanis.com at any time.
Families can pick up presents Dec. 7-10 at Storyline Church in Arvada.
Toys and books can be dropped off at Apex facilities, Red Rocks Community College, Arvada Chamber of Commerce, La Patisserie Française, School House Kitchen & Libations, Super Zoom Bang, New Dawn Chiropractic, Rheinländer Bakery or Indian Tree Golf Club (only on Wednesdays).
Any undonated or unclaimed toys will go to Hope, Connection and Community, who will distribute them to children in need.
Over the last 15 years, Santa House has provided presents for over 12,000 families and 33,000 children.
