A friend pointed out this wonderful idea to me and I wanted to share with you. The Bargaintown Volunteer Fire Company in Egg Harbor Township is holding special needs-friendly visits with Santa Claus this Sunday, Dec. 16.

For many children with disabilities, visiting Santa at the mall or in other busy areas is an overwhelming experience.

The sensory-friendly visits with Santa take place from 2-4p.m. Sun., Dec, 16 at Bargaintown Firehouse, 6550 Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township.

Children and adults with special needs are invited to come take their picture and have cookies and juice with Santa Claus in a stress free and non-judgmental environment.

If you would like, you will have the opportunity to create a child identification card during your visit.

This free event is sponsored by Bargaintown Fire Company.  If you have any questions, please contact Gene Sharpe at 609-653-0424 or at esharpe251@gmail.com.
