30 YEARS — AND STILL STRONG — THANKS TO YOU!

Santa’s Silent Helpers (SSH) was started in 1985 with a goal to anonymously provide food, toys and clothing to Columbus area families at Christmas time.

Our goal remains unchanged: work with neighborhood groups, churches and others to find the families who might not receive help at Christmas or were too proud to seek public assistance. With your help, we have raised over $1,000,000 and helped thousands of families, children, and seniors.


Santa’s Silent Helpers was founded in 1985.

The Board of Directors, who shares the spirit of Santa’s Silent Helpers, covers all administrative costs. This assures that 100% of your tax deductible contribution will spread joy to those who may have had medical problems, job loss, or family setback.

You can help extend the quiet hand of SSH to 400 families again this year by donating with the “Donate Now” button on the top of the page.
All donations are securely processed through PayPal.
