Friends of Flying Santa, a nonprofit organization, is carrying on an 87-year-old tradition that brings holiday joy to U.S. Coast Guard families in the Northeast. The yearly helicopter visits and gifts for the children are small tokens of appreciation for the outstanding work of the Coast Guard and their supportive families. You can read all about this heartwarming tradition at www.flyingsanta.org.
Although we receive vital support from companies and pilots each year, the toys and other expenses are paid for through many small donations. This year we are making plans to add an additional 150-200 Coast Guard children to our Flying Santa route. To help us with these new expenses, we are holding a month-long auction that will begin on April 1, 2016.
Thank you for your support
