December 20 & 21 - Winter Wonderland - Ronald McDonald House Atlanta

December 20 - RMH Peachtree-Dunwoody

December 21 - RMH Gatewood

General Overview:  

  • A professional Santa Clause with Mrs. Clause comes to visit the kids so they don't miss out on seeing Santa just because they are sick

  • The families get access and free prints of their child seeing Santa

  • The volunteers dress up as elves and eavesdrop on the kids telling Santa what they want, and then we do our best to find a gift that matches

  • Then we load the kids up with as many toys their little arms can handle

  • Any leftover toys and gifts are given to the Ronald McDonald House so families in need (either financially or due to being so busy in the hospital) can get toys for their kids to open on Christmas morning
