Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. Today he visited Hope Chest dressed up like Jackson Overton. Jackson decided he wanted to help the homeless so he wrote a note asking his family to help him. At a large Thanksgiving gathering his family brought items to donate to Hope Chest. Jackson and his mom, Lisa, delivered a van full of blankets, gloves, toys and many other new and gently used items. Jackson also presented Hope Chest a check from his grandparents. Jackson wanted everyone to be "cozy". He definitely warmed our hearts! Thank you Jackson!
