GOOD NEWS 'Operation Santa Claus' Spreads Christmas Cheer to Kids With Special Needs
Christmas came early this year for thousands of children with special needs.
On Dec. 9, non-profit organization Community Mayors held "Operation Santa Claus" at New York City's JFK Airport.
Nearly 4,000 children with disabilities were entertained in a hangar provided by the Port Authority Police while they waited to meet Santa Claus.
After enjoying refreshments and receiving toys, the kids watched St. Nick himself arrive, not on a sleigh but a Delta jet!
Volunteers from multiple law enforcement and community agencies were on hand to help make the special day possible.
Santa himself summed things up best right after he landed: "Every child is special to Santa. Every child has [his or her] own story. And every child sees Santa as someone who they can always rely on."
Merry Christmas, indeed!
