Follow the signs to our drive-thru station, let us know how many people are in the vehicle and we'll load up a tray with your candy canes! Don't forget to pass us your note to Mr. Claus, as well as any donations you may have.

While the event is free, the following donations will be accepted:

Haller Lake Community Club is sponsoring numerous Northgate Elementary School students and families to provide holiday presents. This year we are collecting gift cards for safe and easy gifting. Gift card ideas include pre-loaded visa or mastercards, and nearby open retailers at Northgate Mall or Northgate North (Target, Best Buy etc.), as well as local grocery stores including Safeway, Sprout or QFC. Many stores offer curbside pick-up options, and some gift cards can even be purchased online and printed at home, or delivered through amazon.com.

We will also be accepting nutritious shelf stable food donations for our local food bank, North Helpline. Ideas include; canned fruits/vegetables/soups/meats, coffee, rice, beans, nut butters, pastas, cereals, snack bars, and pet food.
