255 Winter Mountain Drive, Andreas, PA 18211.  This holiday season, Santa and his elves at Galen Glen Winery are working to make this the best year yet for underprivileged families in the county. Tasting Room Manager, Kathy Matson, states, “This is our seventh holiday season working with Santa and the US Marine Corps Toys-for-Tots campaign. Every year the amount of toys and monetary donations increases from the season before.  We are striving to make this the best year yet.”  Santa will arrive at the winery on Sunday, November 29th at noon.  He will be available for photos. Matson implores, “Bring your camera and a member of our staff will be happy to help you capture a lasting memory.” The winery will have a token gift for every family who brings a new, unwrapped toy or monetary donation. Plus, Santa will be sure to add you to his “nice” list. The toy and monetary donation collection boxes are currently at the winery and will be there until Sunday, December 13th.

The US Marines Toys-for-Tots foundation is an IRS recognized not-for-profit charity and since 1991 has been assisting the US Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically-disadvantaged children at Christmas.  The goal of the foundation is to provide, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less-fortunate youngsters that will assist them into becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.
