New shelves for storage

The Santa Claus Girls have new shelves for their storage room thanks to building materials donated by Menards in Grand Forks and free labor from Darrell and Trevis Ekberg. We would also like to thank Menards Manager Matt and Mike from Lumber for their assistance.

Santa Claus Girls distributes gifts to area children

Santa Claus Girls distributes gifts to area children

By Jennifer Johnson on Dec 12, 2014 at 7:01 p.m.

Volunteers delivered packages Friday morning for one of Grand Forks’ oldest charities.

Every year, the Herald’s Santa Claus Girls delivers gifts for children who otherwise might not have the opportunity.

About a dozen people showed up Friday to help deliver toys, books and other gifts, said Anita Geffre, the Herald’s finance director and charity president.

While the number of volunteers was a bit lower than last year, the need was still strong — about 343 families signed up to receive gifts for children, she said.

So far, Santa Claus Girls has received about $10,000 in donations, a little more than halfway to the $18,000 goal this year. But the charity is still accepting money contributions, Geffre said.
