More COVID precautions will be in place during pickup - please follow all instructions from Special Santa staff members.

Special Santa is a Chillicothe Jaycees project and is not part of any other group or agency.

Special Santa is for children (ages 2-10) who may not get presents otherwise.  Special Santa is "special" because our givers try to get what the children would ask Santa for, and our goal is to continue the belief in Santa.  Your children are more likely to get what they ask for if it's not very expensive.
