Santa. This effort was made after the club had cancelled four fund raising events during 2020 because of the pandemic.
More than a dozen supporters including both individuals and churches
have already contributed to Civitan Project Santa. The donations have ranged from $5 to $500 each. Contributions of
any amount are gratefully appreciated.
