Become a Hillside “Special Santa” | Kids Out and About Rochester

Become a Hillside “Special Santa”

Join a 40+-year tradition with YOUR family! Show your kids what the “giving season” is really about by donating new toys and gifts for families served by Hillside. These may be the only holiday gifts that many of these children receive.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

Become a Hillside “Special Santa” this year. Take your family for a special shopping trip to purchase and donate new, unwrapped toys and gifts for families served by Hillside. Drop them off at dozens of community locations throughout Rochester, or online through Hillside youth’s special Amazon Smile wish lists. Monetary donations are also accepted.

This true community partnership brightens the holidays for thousands of children and families served by Hillside. Last year alone, more than 3,500 children and families received holiday gifts through Special Santa!
