Baylor University's eighth annual Santa's Workshop will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, in Russell Gymnasium. This year, 795 children have been pre-registered to attend the event, which is sponsored by the Baylor office of student activities, Baylor Staff Council and ARAMARK.

Students from the Baylor School of Education, as well as Baylor student athletes and yell leaders, will entertain the children, ages 3 to 5 from Waco-area preschools. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at the event at approximately 11:30 a.m. and will present each child with a gift and a goodie bag, including an apple, orange, candy, toothbrush and toothpaste.

ARAMARK will donate lunch for the workshop, and gift donations from various vendors will go towards the supplies needed for the workshop.

"The main benefit for the staff is to see the children's faces light up when they open their presents," said Rhona Stefka, staff council coordinator.

For more information, contact Stefka at 710-4881.
