Our annual Santa Bus event is on the calendar again, set for Friday, December 6, 2019! Last year's event brought in over THREE TIMES the attendees from the previous year. By far the largest (and coldest) Santa Bus event to date. And the best part is we raised $2,500 for families connected with the ‘Parenting Children with Special Needs’ charitable organization!
Parenting Children with Special Needs, Inc. (PCWSN Charity) is a Missouri 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of families who have a child with challenges associated with a medical diagnosis.
