Thank You to all the wonderful donors, community partners and volunteers who helped make this extra special for the youth and families served by the Hillside Special Santa program. We are looking forward to this upcoming holiday season!
Hillside Special Santas is the holiday giving program of Hillside Family of Agencies (HFA) affiliates, that benefits youth and families whom receive residential, community-based, day treatment and or customized services through one of a multitude of programs the agency provides to local communities throughout New York State and Prince George’s County, Maryland.
Many of the families of these youth find themselves needing assistance during the holiday season to provide gifts for their children. As a result of the continuous dedication and generosity of the communities in which our services are offered, the Hillside Special Santas program is able to collaborate with staff and families to provide 3 gifts to each of the youth receiving services, as well as any siblings or children that reside in the home.
