Heart & Light Charitable Program
Thank you for your interest in Santa’s Wonderland’s charitable services program called “Heart Light”.
Since our beginnings, Santa’s Wonderland has been devoted to helping those who can’t help themselves, and we have made some ongoing commitments to four main “franchise charities” that we continue to financially support each and every season. On a national scale, we support Texas A&M’s chapter of “Project Sunshine” by bringing several hundred severely handicapped and challenged children and their one-on-one Aggie sponsors out for two wonderful nights of Christmas fun, food and joy at no cost to their organization. We also support Freedom Place. On a regional scale, we help Lone Star Santas put toys into the hands of children who have encountered natural disaster. Additionally, and on a local scale, we proudly support the wonderful kids and staff at the Still Creek Ranch, as well as SOS Ministries, The Brazos Valley Food Bank, Long Way Home, and the Aggieland Humane Society. These organizations do so much to help those in our community.
As you might imagine, we have many charity requests each and every season from so many worthy non-profit organizations. And although we strive to lend a helping hand to as many non-profits as possible, like any other business there are only so many requests that we can financially accommodate each season.
Therefore, we generally give priority consideration to charity applications based first upon financial hardship factors, and secondarily upon other important needs factors. It is our sincere wish that our new “Heart Light” program will help all of us to efficiently and fairly serve and bring joy to as many worthy and deserving recipients as possible each season. Here’s how the new program works.
