Santa's Workshop


 Thank you for making a child's season bright!

This year's Santa's Workshop will be held Saturday, December 7, 2019. 

Each year, YWCA Central Alabama hosts Santa’s Workshop to help families who are living in area homeless/transitional shelters or those otherwise in need to have a happy holiday season. On the day on the event, children get to meet Santa and make gifts and crafts that they can give to parents, teachers, friends and other loved ones.

Meanwhile, caregivers get to "shop" (everything is free) for toys and other gifts to give to their precious babies.
