Santas Anonymous is sending out a big thank you to all the people who donated to the charity this year, organizers say they should be able to deliver gifts to all of the clients who requested them.
Organizers say they were asked to supply about 24,000 children with Christmas gifts this year and they say they should be able to meet the demand.
All of the people who donated are being thanked for their generosity.
"For people who benefit from Santas Anonymous, it can be very humbling on their side, but this means everything," said organizer Lana Nordlund. "A lot of them are the working poor nowadays or they're going back to school and trying to better their education, so being able to give something to their kids at Christmas time just means the world to the recipients."
Santas Anonymous says about 2,500 people also volunteered their time to deliver presents this year.
