Special Santa 2021 Starts October 30 with All-Online Campaign

It’s back! Hillside’s annual Special Santa campaign will return Saturday, October 30 with an online campaign that aims to provide toys and gifts to thousands of children and families.

For nearly 40 years, generous individuals and local businesses have donated toys, games, clothing and other gifts to children served by Hillside throughout much of New York State and in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Last year alone, more than 4,000 young people enjoyed a brighter holiday season thanks to the public’s embrace of this perennial campaign.

For the second year in a row, Special Santa 2021 will be an all-online effort. Starting October 30, Hillside’s Amazon Smile Charity Wish Lists will be live and populated by requests made by youth in Hillside programs. Individuals wishing to donate directly to the program can do so any time by visiting our Donate Now page and designating their donation to Hillside’s Special Santa fund.
