Santa's Workshop is an annual Christmas event that brings hundreds of children (ages 3-5) to Baylor campus from daycares and Head Start centers all across Waco -- and this year West and Marlin too!

The event gives children the opportunity to interact with the Baylor community, students and volunteers; have a meal, meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, and receive a free gift! These toys come from the Baylor students and faculty through a semester-long donation drive.

In short, Santa's Workshop is a collaborative celebration which brings together various student groups, departments, the larger campus community, and the Waco community.

Donation Drive goes from Oct. to Dec. 4, 2014
