PRINCETON, Ind. (WEHT)- There may not be snow on the ground, but it certainly looks, feels, and sounds like Christmas along Gibson St. in Princeton once again.

Princeton’s “Santa with a Cause” reopened his workshop Friday, welcoming children of all ages to get a picture taken and let jolly ol’ Saint Nick know what they want for Christmas. But in addition to everything going on at the North Pole, Santa says he has a special cause in the Tri-State.

Last year, Santa says he raised over $10,000 to help more than 70 kids in need have a better Christmas. This year, he says he’s trying to raise the stakes and get enough money to help 90 kids across southwest Indiana.

Families who visited Santa Friday says they’re happy to help him help their community, especially giving back to children in need. Santa says he plans to stay out all night on December 18th to meet his goal by the 21st.
