News 13 continues our
challenge to help give back. Our morning anchors are spotlighting 3
local charities every month.
Voting opens up on our WLOS Facebook Page today, for one of them to win $1,000 from our partners, Bryan
The final charity in this month's Charity Challenge is "Friends of Santa Claus." It is a charity to help sick parents and kids have a Christmas party to remember. Friends of Santa Claus holds their annual Christmas party for families who have a child fighting cancer.
"It gives them a chance to be just children, not children with cancer," Matt Helton said. Kids at the party get to listen to carolers, meet Santa Claus, get gifts and pick out a surprise to give to their parents.
The organization also helps kids go to camp. If the organization wins the Charity Challenge, it will add to their camp fund.
