Who We Are

We are a community of volunteers keeping the Fairbanks tradition of providing food and toys to families in need during the holidays. This tradition was started by the Snedden family in Fairbanks more than 60 years ago, and is now being continued by Santa’s Helpers 501(c) in collaboration with the North Star Community Foundation (www.nscfundalaska.org), Fairbanks Nissan Dealers, our local Food Bank and all the volunteers who have been involved during the rebuilding of this organization. Let’s continue neighbors helping neighbors for decades to come!
