Christmas 2015

This year Santa gave out stockings that were three feet tall (taller than many of the youth) filled with toys and games. Special thanks to all the Santa Helpers who made another Christmas special to all our community youth.

The annual SFR Christmas party was a huge success with 52 youth lined up for their box of gifts delivered by the bug man himself!  In addition to gifts from Santa, each child also received a stocking of goodies from the SFR Neighborhood Watch.

Snacks were also served at the event.


As always this SFR event is free to residents of the community.


Special thanks to all of Santa's helpers who helped make a special Christmas for our youth and families living at the SFR community!


SFR volunteers held a Dirty Santa party a week before Santa's arrival and a fun time was had by all!
