That's a wrap on another great year of The Santa Project.

Hundreds of visits and thousands of goodie bags later, families across the state of Maryland made lifelong memories and experienced so much joy.

See the videos below...we couldn't have done it without an incredible team of volunteers and all of our sponsors!

Absolutely fantastic! Grateful for this experience this year, would gladly pay to do this every year. Magical, special, and so exciting for the kids. Loved the nice list with the kids' names on it! What a great touch. Also appreciated that Santa knew the kids' names when he got there. Made it really personalized and special. Appreciated that we could take as many pics as we wanted and even get some of the whole family. The gift bag was also amazing. The kids loved it.

Loved it so much and it was so special for the kids!! And avoided crowds... much more personal experience.

Santa was personable and able to draw out our star-struck child by singing and dancing.

Amazing and magical. I love this new tradition and hope this one continues.

This was such a bright spot in this different year. Was happy to have the personal visit by Santa, the goodie bag AND support an amazing cause. The elves were friendly too.

Santa did a fantastic job interacting with both of my daughters. The oldest was skeptical of the visit but ended up having a lot of fun and enjoying the visit. The little one was delighted! Even the arrival with Christmas music playing from the truck added to the fun and excitement.

I really hope you do this again next year. My family enjoyed it so much and it made the magic of Christmas come alive during these crazy times. My son would not stop talking about how Santa came to visit.

Loved every single thing!! The truck, the elf, the gifts and especially the list of names!! My kids were THRILLED they made the nice list and loved seeing their friends' names too!

Santa and Mrs. Claus were terrific. They spent time talking with my kids and knew their names. The visit didn't feel rushed at all, it was much better than other Santa visits we've had at the mall. Please bring it back again next year!

I was interested to see how this was going to work out — but knowing we weren't going to the Mall to see Santa I was excited regardless of the outcome to have a Santa interaction for my boys. You guys exceeded my expectations. My 5 and 8 year olds were shocked when Santa knew their names walking up the driveway, and to see their names on the GOOD LIST was so awesome.


What is The Santa Project?

The Santa Project features Santa and his elves making personal visits to children and their families during the Christmas season. This initiative, created during the COVID pandemic, was so successful in its first year that more than 2,300 children were able to greet Santa and his elves at their homes. The Santa Project has now become a regular event for Blossoms of Hope and since 2021, our partner Zaching Against Cancer Foundation.

Sponsors help with supporting designated neighborhoods for Santa to visit while families sign up for an in-person, at home visit from Santa and his elves. Santa also visits more than 100 children in cooperation with the Howard County Public School System. Santa has a “naughty and nice” list and a bag of goodies. Families are encouraged to take selfies and enjoy the holiday cheer.
