Letters from Santa – 2016

As you may have heard,  Junior Leaguers are pretty tight with Santa.  For the past several years, we’ve helped ensure that children get their handwritten letters from Santa. This year, more than 130 letters, postmarked from the North Pole, arrived before Christmas to good little boys and girls.  JLGA generated over $700 helping out the jolly ‘ole man himself.

Nicole Hall, fundraiser chair, was thrilled with the participation this year –

“It was a lot of fun to share our “opportunity” at the Alton High craft fair again this year – that is such a great event.  We grew by nearly 30 letters compared to last year.  I would say the word is out that JLGA is a great helper to Santa!”

One hundred percent of the proceeds go right back into our community, helping to support JLGA causes in the Riverbend area.
