There is a real Santa living amongst us. Luke Barron is a freshman at Olympic Heights and he started a Grass Roots project about 5 years ago and through parents unemployment, hard times in our community, he has managed to rally our community to help 185 Head Start Program children this year. www.friends4kids-operationhobo.com .

(Delray Full Service Center)a Head Start Program has gotten a visit from Santa and his elves or Hanukkah Helpers. Luke dresses as Santa,and make a grand entrance, while one of the volunteers Ronnie Kramer donates her time and talent to providing live music and sing a longs for the kids to enjoy, we distributed over 500 TOYS and gifts to the teachers as well. Luke's love for reading wants promotes literacy so each child gets a new book and 2 toys.

Many people make this happen each year and through personal loss this year, including job loss but these parents feel that these hard times provides an opportunity to demonstrate character in tough times. Various faiths and economic backgrounds come together because they understand the true meaning of the holiday spirit. A Mitzvah if you will.

The annual Gift Wrapping Day is where 20 of our friends come and spend the afternoon, wrapping presents and singing Christmas Carols.
This is what the holidays are about and this is the good side of Boca Raton that many do not see.
