Details:Each year the Pasadena Jaycees provide Santa suits so Santa can visit our December
reading clubs. They also need volunteers for their annual "Operation Santa" program.

Operation Santa is the Pasadena Jaycees' longest running community service project.

Since 1934, they have been collecting letters to Santa Claus written by
children in Pasadena and the surrounding areas. Those letters are read, toy drives are
initiated, funds are raised, houses are mapped out, and on Christmas Eve Santa and
Mrs. Claus visit the homes of these children with gifts in hand.

Not only will you help touch the lives of over 3,500 children, but the experience of working
with these kids and fulfilling their Christmas wishes is truly a memory you will cherish.
Be a part of this wonderful event and Volunteer as a Santa or Mrs. Claus on Christmas Eve!

Time: Come by the North Pole from 9am - 1pm to get your assigned route
(Given on a first come, first serve basis. Not all Santas signed up will receive a route, so
please come early.)

Santa Teams leave at approximately 5:00 p.m. You will be done by 9:00 p.m. at the latest.

Job Description: Sort toys for children on your route, pack your car full of these toys, and deliver
them to good boys and girls throughout Pasadena and surrounding communities.
No experience necessary - they will train and provide the full outfits for you to borrow!

Compensation: Free breakfast and dinner, and the wonderful feeling you’ll get when you make a
child’s face light up. Toys and wardrobe are provided by the project.

Transportation: Traditionally your “sled” is driven by an Elf volunteer, but Mrs. Claus can also do
the driving.

The bigger the car you have, the better. 4 doors work better than 2 doors for delivering toys.
Minivans or SUV's work the best because of the extra cargo space.
