Kids and adults alike, at the Tri-City Union Gospel Mission, had a special visitor yesterday...Santa Claus!

The woman who organized the event used to be homeless but was able to get back on her feet.  She knew many of the kids wouldn't get a chance to visit Santa if he didn't come to them at the women's shelter so she worked hard to make that happen.

It wan't just about the kids though.  One woman in her 50's was able to meet Santa for the first time.

What a great way to spread Christmas joy!
