Who does Wildcat Santa help?
We help University of New Hampshire employees and their families. We try to help everyone who does not qualify for help elsewhere.
How does Wildcat Santa identify or determine who the recipients are?
Sometimes a coworker, or a family member will call us and ask for help and of course the recipient will sometimes self-refer.
Is cash donated to Wildcat Santa and what is done with it?
We do get some cash donations, however the bulk of cash we obtain is through the sale of raffle tickets. We use those monies to purchase gift certificates for our older children, as the toys we collect are usually more appropriate for younger children.
Do we always have enough toys for the families?
We receive ample donations, but sometimes lack age-appropriate or special interest items. This is where we may use some of the proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets to accomodate this need.
