SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - If you live in "Sustainable Santee" you may have heard of the Santee Santas.
The group of jolly ol' good doers makes it their mission every year to spread Christmas cheer and hopefully give some pick-me-ups to their fellow Santee citizens who are facing tough times. They make it all happen with their annual food and toy drive, senior outreach program and fundraisers.
News 8's Heather Myers sat down with Santee Santa representatives Sam Modica and John Morley and talked about all the good they do around the city of Santee.
The Santas have gathered this year's donation haul and are going to be distributing the toys and goods to area families on Friday and are asking for help from volunteers. They're asking volunteers to show up at 9:30 a.m. Friday at 9955 Mission Gorge Road ready to help.
